Hard disk drives are today\'s fastest permanent storage media and have a large capacity. For this two reasons they are the most used storage medium in computers and servers. When buying a new hard disk, there are three important things to consider:\
- The connection of the disk to the computer or other device you will be using it with has a big influence on the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk. Make sure the connection of the disk you buy is compatible with your computer!\
- The rotational speed is also important for the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk and determines the time it takes to find a file on the disk.\
- Last but not least, the storage capacity of the disk, i.e. the amount of data that can be stored on the disk.

Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the product data-sheet can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by Seagate: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

The official marketing text of Seagate Atlas 10K ATLAS IV 73GB U320 as supplied by the manufacturer
Maxtor extended the Atlas 10K series with the fourth line of SCSI drives and released the first line of the Atlas 15K series. The drives of this series have the spindle speed of 15,000 rpm. They are not entirely new solutions, but it's still worth testing their performance. We will compare them with Seagate's models of the latest generation

This model belongs to the fourth generation of Maxtor 10K drives. This line contains drives of 36.7, 73.5, 146.1GB with two interface types: 68-pin Wide or 80-pin SCA-2. We tested the 73.5GB disc judging by the letters in the model name. The interface is 68-pin Wide, letter L (SCA-2 interface is indicated with letter J). The company says that the data rate is increased by 24% and the average access time is decreased by 5% relative to the previous generation of SCSI 10K drives. The drive integrates the Shock Protection System, second-generation Ultra320 interface with MaxAdapt technology, an analog of Adaptive Active Filtration which reduces probability of errors, simplifies integration and increases bus efficiency
