Maxtor announces 40 gig 7200 RPM drive


— 1:12 PM on November 8, 1999

Wow. I go and get myself a couple of 13.6 giggers in a RAID 0, and Maxtor laughs at my puny 27 gigs of storage. I saw the announcement over at AnandTech regarding this spanky new drive. 40 gigs, 7200 RPM, sub 9ms average seek time, and all the other goodies that are becoming standard on Maxtor's higher-end drives (2 MB PC100 cache, etc.). The press release also talks about building a RAID 5 with these things using Maxtor's own "RAIDZONE" disk arrays-- anybody know anything about that? Post a comment and let me know.
