I got my hands on a badly functioning disc, and because it was in a very poor state. So I took it apart.
I didn't get a photo of the open disc, but I'm sure everyone has seen one of those. So here I have pictures of the already disassembled disc. And a lot of details.

The arm of the read heads, the top left exposing the head electronics and the bottom right the motor winding.
I couldn't remove the arm of the read heads because I didn't have such a small star screwdriver.

Otherwise, I personally prefer Maxtor drives and over the years I haven't had a hardware problem with them and they all serve me well so far.

If you value your data and files, definitely secure it backup.
