    They were recently released. I haven't saw anything about WD being more reliable. I suppose it just comes down to personal preference. I've heard some people have terrible luck with Maxtor, and some have terrible luck with WD.

    My biggest gripe about WD drives are that many of their models seem to make a little more noise than the Maxtor or Seagate couterpart but as far as reliabilty and performance are concerned they all seem on par in my personal opinion, infact it seems that all brands are very reliable considering the tasks that a hardrive has to endure.
    One bright spot on Maxtors record is their excellent tech support, which I beleive is superior to many others.

    i would of gone with the maxtor one also but im sure it doesnt reallly matter. There probably both fast, but i heard that maxtor offers less noisy hard drives than WD.

    The only problem I can see is that you got an Athlon XP 3000... That's a waste of money most of the time.
