Maxtor / However getting it was a pain

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Drive was Dead on Arrival (DOA). First call to customer service said I could return it for a refurbished drive. Second call to customer service said I could return it for a new drive. Customer service people didn't seem to know what they were doing. The final drive that I did end up getting (after having to pay for shipping to ship the dead drive back) was good quality. However getting it was a pain.

    Maxtor - Do not buy it!
    United States

    have purchased two Maxtor products and found that they did not last more than three hours each before they went down the tubes. I e-mailed Maxtor to bad they are out of warranty, whoops! pardon me for expectiong an external storage unit to last more than three hours. Do not buy Maxtor products.

    totally agree, had two new 2terabyte drives go south with all my data each time, good think I didn't scrub the back up drives, but it's a shame maxtor sales junk, now I've only lost three weeks of downloading. won't buy a maxtor again, ever. I hope they go out of business
