Maxtor has begun to sell its world’s largest MaXLine II HDDs in
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.
