Maxtor has begun to sell its world’s largest MaXLine II HDDs in Japan and possibly some other countries. The devices boast with ultimate capacity of 250 and 300GB, but are not likely to be really fast because of small buffers and 5400rpm motors.

Maxtor’s MaXLine II hard disk drives are positioned for large storage solutions and enthusiasts requiring a lot of capacity and no need for a fast and furious HDD. The MaXLine II are made using the latest innovative platters from Maxtor and come in 3.5” form-factors. Unlike other modern hard drives, Maxtor’s huge babes feature Parallel ATA-133 interface and not Serial ATA-150. Both HDDs provide 2MB cache-buffers and 5400rpm motors, so, do not expect them to show high performance.

Japanese web-site Akiba PC Hotline reports that the Maxtor MaXLine II 250GB is available in local stores for $288, while the 300GB model is priced at $390.
