Newest SCSI reviewed: Maxtor Atlas 10K V
As one of a new breed of SCSI drives, the Atlas 10K V crams 73-gigabytes of data onto a single two-sided platter that measures less than three inches in diameter. Par for the course, Maxtor's flagship remains a four-platter design and yields a maximum capacity of 300 GB in a low-profile chassis. The Atlas continues a trend of differentiating seek times between family members with varying platter counts. While the single-platter 8D073x0 model scores a 4.0 ms claim, the 300 GB flagship comes stamped with a slightly more sedate 4.4 ms seek time. Although ATA drives (including Maxtor's own MaXLine III) have started the scramble to a roomier 16 MB buffer, the 10K V remains at an industry-standard eight megabytes.
