Maxtor Atlas 15K II HDD Review

@ 2004/12/10
With reviews of the Seagate Cheetah 15K.4 and Fujitsu's MAU3147 under our belt, it may be safe to say that the highly-anticipated crop of next-generation drives has not quite lived up to the lofty hopes of many. When accompanied by an appropriate buffer segmentation scheme, the 15K.4 manages to improve a bit over its predecessor in a single-user setup. In a similar vein, the MAU3147 shatters non-server performance marks. Both drives, however, come up short when contrasted with last-generation drives in server performance, the most important area for the vast majority of the drives' target market.
