Seagate Cheetah 36XL - FrostyTech.com Seagate Cheetah 36XL
Thu Jul 12, 2001 | 7:24P| PermaLink
With 15,000-RPM drives now on the market, the price of 10,000-RPM SCSI drives is sure to fall. This will allow those looking for high-end performance to get what they want at a price that won't break the bank. Today, I review the latest generation of the first 10,000-RPM drive I can remember: Seagate's 18-gigabyte Cheetah 36XL. The Seagate drive I'm testing today is the 18.2-gigabyte Ultra160 10,000 RPM Cheetah (ST318405LW). The drive itself isn't much different from most SCSI drives on the market now. The company claims the drive is 15 percent faster than earlier models. There are two things that I remember about the first SCSI drive I had -- a 9-gigabyte Seagate Barracuda: it was a half-height drive that needed lots of room for its large amount of heat, and it was loud. Performance has come a long way since then. SCSI drives now, while not quite reaching the levels of IDE drives, are much quieter, smaller and cooler than they used to be.
