Maxtor DiamondMax Plus D740X

IOMeter Performance

[an error occurred while processing the directive]
The DiamondMax Plus 740DX significantly build's on the Plus 60 in IOMeter to yield a Workstation Index (a normalized average of 16, 64, and 256 I/O results) of 160.24, a score that trails the leading competition by just a few points. Not bad at all in a test where Maxtor's drives have lagged in the past!

It should be noted that the Maxtor's low-load performance (fully viewable through the StorageReview.com database) is exceptionally high. Recent research indicates that low queue depths may in fact be more relevant to performance in a large majority of uses. In an experimental index that emphasizes low I/O counts, the D740X possesses the highest score of any ATA drive.
