Seagate Cheetah 10k.6 Review
Reviewed by Andrew Chalfant on 05.20.2003
Provided by Seagate


Seagate is the largest producer of magnetic storage products, so it is no surprise that it is the leader in the production of high performance SCSI drives. Seagate is now on to their sixth generation of 10k rpm SCSI drives, which is no longer the fastest spindle speed. However, with a data density that claims 36 gigabytes per platter, the Cheetah 10k.6 series boasts a maximum storage capacity of 146 gigabytes - couple these specifics with claimed 4.7 ms seek times and an Ultra320 interface, Seagate has created an extremely attractive hard drive.
