I just ripped my machine apart, cleaned it out and made sure all the
connections are snug. I didn't find anything glaringly wrong inside, so my
current conclusion is that my machine just gets too durn hot for the drive to
function properly. I'm going to periodically test my throughput to see if it
degrades over time. See if taking your machine down for a few hours helps
things out. If so we can yell at Maxtor, otherwise its back on the bug hunt.
Thanks to everyone who sent suggestions! Hopefully I'm through with this
