SR presents results to readers through a percentile ranking system. Mobile by Shara Tibken Dec 6, Though various members of the family feature differing platter densities and hence differing transfer rates and access times, Maxtor claims that all three densities will yield similar performance. The Server DriveMark is a convenient at-a-glance figure derived from the weighted average of results obtained from the four different loads. The figures provided are net temperatures representing the difference between the measured drive temperature and ambient temperature. Games, of course, are not multitasked- all five titles were run in a serial fashion featuring approximately half an hour of play time per game.

Subjectively speaking, the drive emitted an ever-so-slight low-pitched hum.

Its score of According to maxtoe and analyzed data collected from participating StorageReview. Those users ordering bare units from specialty resellers should, however, double check to ensure that they know exactly what kind of drive they should expect to receive. Despite their age, the Disk WinMarks are somewhat of an industry standard.

We delete comments that violate our policy maxtof, which we encourage you to read. Like most of the competition, Maxtor’s latest entry into the high-end ATA performance sweeps cannot quite unseat Western Digital’s long-time champion Caviar series.

Heat and Noise Idle Noise – The sound pressure emitted from a drive measured at a distance of 18 millimeters.

Scores on top are better. While just two gig platters can yield gigabytes, it takes three or gig platters to reach the same capacity. The short-stroked nature of the latter two drives, however, permits them less “decay” in rates as tests at133 towards the inner sections of the drive.

It ara133 in the Bootup DriveMark, a rather unusual test that incorporates higher-than-normal queue depths where significant differences emerge. The use of an external controller the Promise Ultra and its associated driver unfortunately makes it more difficult to consistently disable write caching mator unfortunately precludes us from presenting average write access times. Maxtor, like Western Digital, is moving away from discrete platter densities within a given family.

A multiple-layer filter sifts through collected data, silently omitting questionable results or results from questionable participants.

In addition to platter densities, the drives come equipped with either ball bearing or the newer and quieter fluid dynamic bearing motors. Net Drive Temperature – The highest temperature recorded from a point sample of a drive’s top plate after it has been under heavy load for 80 minutes. System Requirements OS Required.

Windows XP’s boot procedure involves significantly different access patterns naxtor queue depths than those found in other disk accesses. Transfer Rate Graphs in megabytes per second. SR presents results to readers through a percentile ranking system.

The figure typically represents the lowest sustained transfer rate a drive delivers. The High-End DriveMark includes significantly more sequential transfers and write as opposed to read operations. Legacy Performance Graphs in megabytes per second. Maxtor is rolling out a separate line, the Maxline Plus, that incorporates similar mechanics but is backed by a longer three-year policy. Don’t cut the cord on cable like a rookie The 3: The GB capacity point is one that will be fulfilled by the use of 60, 68, and 80 GB disks.


Applications include Adobe Photoshop v5. A proprietary analysis engine then processes the qualified dataset. Note that while the measurement is an A-weighted decibel score that weighs frequencies in proportion to human ear sensitivity, a low score does not necessarily predict whether or not a drive will exhibit a high-pitch whine that some may find intrusive.

The following results serve only as a reference; SR does not factor them into final judgments and recommends that readers do the same.

Storage controller – plug-in card.

Discussion threads can be closed at any time at our discretion. Legacy Performance eTesting Lab’s WinBench 99 Disk WinMark tests are benchmarks that attempt to measure desktop performance through a rather dated recording of high-level applications.
