Maxtor Corp. announced a pair of Serial ATA hard drives on Monday, increasing capacities to 300 Mbytes while offering native command queuing and a significantly larger 16-Mbyte buffer.
The new 7,200-RPM drives point to a new axis for improvement in hard drives: throughput. Both the additional buffer size and the NCQ technologies are designed to move data efficiently through the hard drive, from the disk platter to the host PC.

A 300-Gbyte drive is nothing new for Maxtor; the company already ships an external OneTouch 300-GB model and a DiamondMax Plus 5,400-RPM 300-GB drive. The new 250- and 300-GB models fit within Maxtor's DiamondMax 10 family, designed for speed.

Thats the spirit!

Maxtor was kinda loosing grounds lately when compared to other HDD's...but...never say never...so I am glad to hear more about how this drive works! I personally own WD with 8Mb cache...but if this drive is as good as they say...I might consider about buying one in near future

Go emperor...test it ASAP

Yes that warranty is a must. I was lucky enough to get the IBM Deskstar 180GXP 180GB 8MB just before they took out the 3 yr comfort zone. Very reliable unit.
