When I woke up this morning 2-3 people had emailed that outpost had these drives for 99$. I know Maxtor may not have the best name in hard drives but for 99$ for 300gb I was down.

I tried on the website and it was dead so I called them and they said they were only supposed to allow 1 per customer.

I was able to purchase 1 for me then my wife.

Just to make this fast for people call 1-877-688-7678, then hit option 1, then tell them you want to buy item #4116853

(cause the web stuff is totally disabled)

Good luck!

  1. I had my last Maxtor fail on me so I wont use them anymore. They are cheap for a reason – they are crap.

    I am using Samsung and Hitachi drives. Theory goes that they still have some pride and want to produce quality products. That is how I see it. I was pretty mad when my 1.5 yr old Maxtor crapped out so never again with them.

    Just remember to buy a large fireproof safe and keep DVD backups of your important stuff in there and in an off-site location.

    Just imagine coming home from a trip and seeing your house in ashes. Where to go from there? Make a recovery plan so you can bounce back if the worst were to happen.

    Hmmmm. I see you now have something new for me to click on here on the right margin. Guess I’ll give you a few clicks.

  2. I have had about 10 Maxtor HD in the last 8 or 9 years and only one failed on me. That was an used drive and he was used for the testing of machines. Since it was still under warranty, Maxtor sent me a replacement (with a few more gigs of space) freely.

    I think you can trust them, at I trust them.

  3. I’ve been buying Maxtor internal drives since 1999, bigger and bigger sizes with each purchase, and they’ll all held up, except the 300GB drive I bought about 1 year ago. It failed me last week, and I had gotten a bit lazy with my local backups, so I had a gap of about 3 months of content between my live sites and my local backups. What really stinks is that the S.M.A.R.T. system didn’t work as it is supposed to, so I lost more data than I should have. But the failure of S.M.A.R.T. may have been caused by something else, like the operating system.

    No more Maxtor for me. I bought a 300GB Seagate to replace the failed Maxtor. I then bought a 160GB Seagate external drive (USB), mailed it to my web host, and had them copy the contents of my entire dedicated server to it. Got that drive back on Friday, so I’m happy now, because nothing was lost permanently. Cost me some money, but I really don’t mind having another external backup drive that I can just stuff into my bag when I leave the hoemstead for trips.

    I think Maxtor may be rushing their product to market. They are always the first to come out with the next monster-sized internal drives, but I think they may need to do more product testing.


  4. Just placed an order – looks like the raised the price to $109.99
    Well, I just need more space to keep the current stuff running, so it should help out 🙂
    THanks Shoe!
