We will continue to test this drive to make sure it doesn’t experience any problems similar to those experienced with the 5000DV. We will also be watching to see what users post about this drive in our user review section to see if the One-Touch drive experiences any of the same reliability issues of the 5000DV drive or personal storage family. If we feel that reliability is an issue, then we will adjust our score accordingly.
We can say however with a fair amount of confidence that the One-Touch series is a reliable and solid performing product line based on our own experiences. Maxtor has added dramatic improvements to these new drives and appears to have been paying attention to consumer feedback.
The One-Touch series of drives are great for storing large amounts of data including music and movies and should prove to be a valuable asset to any multimedia enthusiasts. With the included FireWire ports, you can stack a large amount of these drives on top of each other without having to worry about heat issues, and the auto power down feature will help ensure that these drives last a long time.
We don’t think that there are any immediate improvements Maxtor needs to make to the One-Touch series other than perhaps lengthening the warranty, and for that we give high praise to Maxtor.
