Maxtor DiamondMax 16 4A250J0 250GB IDE Hard Drive


Maxtor DiamondMax 16 4A250J0 250GB IDE Hard Drive

The Maxtor DiamondMax 16 hard disk drive is designed to efficiently meet the need for capacity. With industry-standard capacity points, the DiamondMax 16 confirms Maxtor's leadership position in drive technology. The DiamondMax 16 drive uses advanced, integrated electronics combined with numerous design innovations to achieve a wide range of capacity points, solid reliability, and quiet operation all at very competitive prices. As a result, the DiamondMax 16 is the premier choice for desktop, commercial and consumer electronic high capacity storage needs. Maxtor-developed parallel ATA interfaces have maximum data transfer rates of 133 MB/sec. With this leading-edge interface, end users will experience the fastest parallel ATA data transfer rates available. Maxtor Quiet Drive Technology provides users with superior disk drive acoustics by reducing noise levels and improving sound quality.DiamondMax 16 drives deliver high reliability and data integrity using the Maxtor-developed Shock Protection System (SPS) and Data Protection System (DPS). SPS and DPS give the drive enhanced protection against both operating and non-operating shock to eliminate costly drive returns. These systems deliver high reliability, as shown by the DiamondMax product line's annualized return rate (ARR) of less than 1.0%.
