View Full Version : Maxtor MaXLine III HDDs

I'm thinking about getting two of these. They're 300GB 7200RPM with 16MB cache SATA 150 drives (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16822144186), but before I do, does anyone have any exprience with the drives? They have some awesome sounding features and have a 5 year warranty instead of only 3 years for the DiamondMax10 drives. They're a little bit more expensive than the DiamondMax drives, but it's worth it for the extra warranty I think.

damn it. I just realized that I threw away my SATA power connectors. :( They were in the PSU box because I had no need for them at the time. My old PSU was also in there, and when I moved, I threw that box away. So that means, I'm going to have to put the HDDs on hold until NewEgg gets their SATA power adapters back in stock. And the thing that just kills is that shipping is $5 for EACH of them.

How can it cost $5 to ship a $3 power adapter? Seriously. Their shipping absolutely blows.

Well, yeah, I know that it's not REALLY 300GB. It sucks, but what can you do?
