Maxtor 94098U8 DiamondMax DM40 40.9GB DMA/ATA-66 
(Ultra) Internal HDD 5400 RPM (94098-U8)


The DiamondMax 40 family of hard drives features highest capacity per platter for mainstream desktop systems.

The drives also include Maxtor's enhanced ShockBlock mechanics and DualWave multi-processor controller for

enhanced performance. The DiamondMax 40 drives are designed for desktop systems, which demand maximum storage

capacity and performance.

To address the growing need for performance from desktop systems, Maxtor has designed a proprietary

electronics architecture that employs concepts used in server-class disk drives and high-performance computing

systems. The Maxtor DualWave controller is a dual-processor architecture that offers features and functionality

typically not found in desktop disk drives. The DiamondMax 40 incorporates the second generation of Maxtor's

revolutionary feature set, ShockBlock. A significant advance in disk drive design, the enhanced ShockBlock now

offers even more shock resistance than did previous products. Testing has demonstrated that the DiamondMax 40 can

endure handling-generated shock levels up to 1, 000G without drive failure. The result of a significant

investment, both in the study of a disk drive's operating environment and in cutting-edge design techniques, this

unprecedented level of protection helps ensure that your data is safe from damage potentially caused by improper
