Storage Review brengt ons een review van de erg dikke 15.000rpm Seagate Cheetah X15 SCSI harddisk. Er mag geconcludeerd worden dat deze drive inderdaad vet snel is alhoewel de WinBench 99 scores wel wat tegenvielen. Hier meer uit de conclusie:
In conclusion, the Cheetah X15 is a groundbreaking product that allows industry-giant Seagate to show the market who's truly in charge. The drive will deliver performance that's light-years ahead of the competition. We have only two small caveats. The first is the high-pitch idle whine that the drive exhibits. Since the drive is targeted towards servers that won't have individual users sitting close to the drive, however, this is a minor weakness at worst. Our second is with the drive's 18 gig capacity. There may be those that desire the X15's blazing speed with state of the art capacities… unfortunately, no mix of the two will be available. Complaints aside, the X15 is the drive to get for those who can live with a max of 18 gigs of storage on one drive who need the utmost in speed. There's no other drive like it.
