    What will this mean for hard drives?

    Either the Maxtor line survives as the Seagate "affordable solution" or Maxtor drives have a Seagate label slapped on them.

    It won't bother me since I buy Western Digital.

    I exclusively buy Seagate HD's. I really hope this won't have effect on the quality of their products. I can't really think of any possible problems from this takeover, but I never really liked Maxtor.

    Didn't Maxtor and Quantum merge just a few years ago?
