Storage Review heeft een review gepost van Quantum's enorme 5,25" Bigfoot TS met de fijne opslagcapaciteit van 19,2Gb(genoeg voor 200.000 plaatjes).
Hier wat stuff over z'n performance (dat het met de capacitiet goed zit weten we wel):
Well, as the test results indicate, the Bigfoot TS isn't going to be challenging the Cheetah line for drive supremacy any time in the near future . The TS is not within the upper echelon of disks. It dwells among the lower divisions. There is no use comparing the drives to today's performance leaders (among them being Quantum's own Fireball EX). All things considered, however, I wouldn't expect a drive marketed as a value-class unit to be challenging speed limits. What is noteworthy, however, is that the TS churned out WinBench 98 scores between 36% and 46% higher than it's TX predecessor. This increase allows us to draw some interesting comparisons. Consider, for example, the top offerings from two current manufacturers: Western Digital's Caviar AC10100 and Fujitsu's Desktop 10. Both are 3.5" disks, ostensibly representing the cream-of-the-crop of ATA performance. Yep, the lowly Bigfoot TS trounces both in most performance figures. To put things further into perspective, a comparison between the TS and the ATA champ of less than a year ago, the IBM Deskstar 8, the TS outdistances the Deskstar in most performance catagories.
