Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Oh, oh, my Linux system is on 4GB Quatum Bigfoot!
But, thanks for the review.

New Most Bigfoot failures I've seen happened in the first year.
So don't take it as gospel. ;-) Just relating my experience with them.

I'm thinking of posting that same review to another place I habit, so I'd like to know if there's enough information in it to be worthwhile. Anything I missed that I could add? Should I leave out the bit about the Quantum Bigfoot?
New Review is fine, as is. Bigfoot included.
A link to the spec might be nice:

Other than that, it's your experience with it that counts.

New Quantium Bigfoots
They are fine, usually after you've reformatted them, and have an OS that can find the sectors as they go bad. Unless you are one of the 40% that don't have that problem. I've had a few Quantium Bigfoot drives, I don't have them anymore. My friends used to have them, so did my brother. At the time it was a good buy, but used up that 5 1/4 drive bay. Then, as said, within the first year errors were found. After a reformat, and a few sessions with Scandisk or Diskdoctor or some other disk utility the drives got fixed, for a while anyway. ;)
