No, Nothing's wrong with these Maxtor DM+9s! It just that, my line of works I've got to moves, Copy, Transfer lots of large DATA & Files many time a days and these supposely High Performance Maxtor DM+9 200GB 8MB Cache don't do too good on a real world job. I guess these DM+ are perfectly good for home use, Gamers, MP3, test score claims for those novices, Not for serious jobs. Where are those Maxline II's that Maxtor talking about???
For example, If I were to copy or move50GB, 85GB or 100+ GB of DATA, DivX,Files It took Maxtor MD+9 Over 1 minute per Gig. So if I asks it to do a 100GB Job, I can take my lunch break because My DM+9s going to take as long as 2 Hours :cry:
Now, compare to other brands, Western Digital JBs for example! For the same amount of DATA, WD1800JBs/WD2000JBs only take about 20 to 25 second per Gig.
I dealth with this kind of works almost every day and it cost me times and money, lots of money that I paid for those DM+9 Because of it many beautiful super fast DATA from many posts and reports and a few web sites that tested. :evil: Those who claims that their Maxtors are suerior to others, Well That's just from someone who want to be an expert! IMHO, That's BS! :!:
