Graig van Sharky Extreme heeft een review van de 13,6Gb dikke Fireball KA UltraATA/66 harddisk gepost. De KA is Quantum's eerste EIDE schijf met een rotatiesnelheid van 7200rpm:
We compared the new KA drive from Quantum to the first generation of 7,200rpm drives, which came in the form of the Seagate Medalist Pro line early last year. Even thought the spindle speed of the two drives is the same (7,200rpm), it's amazing to see how the technology has improved in hard drives to the point where a current generation 7,200rpm drive is dramatically faster than one made just a year ago. We found the Fireball Plus KA drive to be very fast in daily usage, load times were noticeably quicker than other drives our lab currently contains. Another plus to the Fireball that we grew to appreciate was its noise level, which was incredibly low. Several times while using the drive the only clue to its operation was the blinking status light on the ATX case of the test machine it was mounted in.
