I had an unpleasant experience with Maxtor/Seagate support this year.

I had one of their OneTouch III's pack up after 6 mo, and the
warranty replacement died out of the box.  It took 69 days
as well as dozens of phone calls + emails to get a replacement
for the dead replacement.

The overall failure rate of their products seems to be acceptable,
but their support is just terrible.
