Actually, I posted early in this thread about how several Maxtor drives 
died on me and I had decided to never use Maxtor drives again. And I had 
mentioned that I (thought) I read somewhere that Maxtor doesn't fully 
support the standardized method for checking for bad spots on drives. I 
forget what that whole mechanism is called.
