Should I be worried about my harddrive...

Ironically, both my computers Hard drives seem to have died around same time, one of em was a no name and the other HD was a Maxtor(which lasted me about 5 years). So for one of the comps, I bought a 160GB Maxtor...for the other I got an 80GB Western Digital. I started reading reviews about how bad Maxtor is(even though I didn't have a single problem for 5 years) are they just silly reviews or should I try to refund/exchange if possible?

if you already have it, just keep it and hope for the best.

Coming here and asking about opinions on Maxtor after you've already bought one is like asking for your buyers remorse to be trippled :p hehehe Just don't worry about it until it dies (might be next year, might be in another 5 years, or maybe 10, who knows).
