Fujitsu's drives are always among the quietest and coolest around. With just two platters, the MAH is no exception. Idle noise is non-existent and seeks are as quiet as those found on Maxtor's DiamondMax Plus 45 or Western Digital's Caviar WD400BB. The drive operates cool to the touch and should be easily integrated into most machines.
Overall, the MAH is an unassuming drive that provides decent performance... about what one should expect from an entry-level SCSI drive. Nevertheless, one in the market for a 7200 RPM SCSI drive would probably be better off with the Seagate Barracuda 18XL. And, of course, if the 18 gig capacity of both the Fujitsu and Seagate is limiting, when Quantum is offering the Atlas V in capacities of up to 36 gigs.
