Maxtors RMA process is exceptionally quick and simple though, as long as the
drive is still detectable by the BIOS. Their warranty periods are 3 year and
above now too.
All you pay is postage back to Maxtor (in Ireland for the UK).
I've sent 7-8 back, and had replacements about a week or so after returning
them. 3 200's I sent back got replaced with 250's!
No, I don't work for Maxtor!
And yes, I avoid Maxtors now!
