Seagate Cheetah 36ES SCSI Hard Disk Review

Seagate has been one of the top makers of SCSI drives for some time now. But with the high entry fee, can these drives be of any real use for us? Come join Cameron "Sov" Johnson as he takes a look at the Seagate Cheetah 36ES SCSI Hard Drive. There's only one way to find out how well it really performs, and that's to throw it into the grinder and see how it handles the load.

Introduction

 

The world today runs on information. Every time you access the Internet, hit "Send," trade a stock online, use an ATM or even watch a Hollywood blockbuster movie with computer-generated special effects, you create, access and share tremendous amounts of digital information. And for over 22 years, Seagate has been developing the technology and manufacturing the products that help make it all happen.

 

When Seagate was founded in 1979, its hard disc drives helped create the PC revolution. Today, the company is helping to revolutionize the way we live, work and play by enabling the growth of the Internet, putting the world's information at your fingertips. And storage technology, Seagate's core business, has become the center of the new computing architecture.

 

With more and more devices going digital, it's creating an enormous opportunity for new applications like Storage Area Networks, Intelligence on the drive, even mainstream consumer devices like televisions, Personal Video Recorders, gaming consoles, MP3 players, and PDAs. Seagate's position as the world's largest manufacturer of disc drives, magnetic discs and read-write heads, and a leader in Storage Area Network (SAN) solutions, puts it at the heart of today's "information-centric" world. Seagate storage products are where the Internet lives, and the growth of the Web has led to worldwide demand for storage doubling every nine months.

 

Seagate are more well known for their SCSI line of hard disks for servers and workstations. Thanks to the good people at Text100, we have on loan the Seagate Cheetah 36ES Ultra160 SCSI Hard Disk.
