Maxtor 500GB Maxline Pro 7H500F0

Related: hard drive, storage

This is a vintage 2006 enterprise-class drive that shows just how much faster 2008 drives have become: 40-60%! Worth noting is that the 7H500F0 does hold its speed across the drive better than usual. Perhaps this is just due to less than ideal performance on the fast side of the drive (outer tracks).
