Fujitsu MAN3367
  August 20, 2001 Author: Eugene Ra  


Conclusion

Fujitsu's drives have long been famous for their low levels of heat and noise. The MAN is no exception, though we can't quite proclaim the MAN3367, a two-platter model, quieter than the four-platter Atlas 10k III. The two were on par with each other in both idle and seek areas. This illustrates just how mainstream 10k RPM drives have become. As a two-disc model, however, the MAN3367 does operate a bit cooler to the touch.

The StorageReview.com Safe Buy Award



Simply put, this designation means we'd purchase this product without regret. Sure, there may be a slightly better, slightly faster, and/or slightly less-expensive model from a competitor, but you can't go wrong with this particular unit. This award is applicable, of course, to all units at the top of their class, but also applies to units that, though not quite best-of-class, provide a strong showing nonetheless. Overall, the MAN scores in delivering performance where it matters. While its WinBench 99 results lag behind the competition, solid scores in IOMeter File Server and Database indices put it ahead of the competition from Maxtor and Seagate. The MAN is a solid choice for applications where expense and/or heat put 15k RPM drives out of the equation. Results like these, however, make the wait for the 15k MAM-series even more agonizing .
