Hardware Pros hebben een review van de vette 10.000rpm Quantum Atlas 10K Ultra160/m SCSI schijf op het net gekwakt. Kost wel wat, maar dan tel je ook meteen mee :
Performance-wise, the drive absolutely rocks. It beats out both the 7,200 RPM and 5,400 RPM drives by a significantly large margin. I was surprised to see that the Fireball KA Plus came pretty close in a couple of tests, such as the SiSoft Sandra test and Business Winmark 99. Even though it comes close in some scores, the CPU usage is quite high and would seriously slow down server operations if it was using the IDE drive. In any case, you'll be hard pressed to find a higher performing drive than the Atlas 10K. Running Windows NT, and Windows 98 SE day-to-day were also noticeably quicker, especially when using multiple apps and disk-thrashing started to kick-in due to increased swap file usage. We did not suffer any mouse slow downs either during heavy drive usage due to the fact that it uses the SCSI interface and its CPU utilization is very low. Overall, we were extremely impressed with the drives flawless performance under both NT and 98.
