The drive in question is a Maxtor 6B200M0.

These were Maxtor 6Y080M0 and 6Y160MO drives. Running under onboard SATA or Highpoint Rocket Raid cards
The Maxtor drives were problematic for us from the start, and not even heavy enough to make good door stops.

So your no big Maxtor fan then? :)
Do you think the drives had compatibility problems with the controller(s)? Or maybe a driver issue? Kind of hard to believe that so many drives are just faulty..

Btw, I used this drive with 5.4 release (It think) on another controller, but It was one of those cheap Sil controllers, and I got the usual* problems.

Anyone know what these checks refer to?
