Quantum Corporation QML15000LBA hard drive specifications

Quantum Fireball lct - hard drive - 15 GB - ATA-66

As the demand for low-cost PCs continues to grow rapidly, the problem is finding ways to lower costs without lower ingreliability, capacity, and performance. Quantum is meeting the challenge with the new Fireball low-cost technology (LCT) family of hard disk drives. Building on the proven Fireball platform, the Fireball LCT line of drives use advanced, integrated electronics combined with numerous design in notations to achieve leading-edge performance, a wide range of capacity points, and solid reliability for the long run-all at very competitive prices. As a result, these drives are today's premier value in desktop storage for consumer and small business applications. With Quantum's new, second-generation Shock Protection System II (SPS II), Fireball LCT drives take reliability and data integrity to an even higher level, with enhanced protection against both operating and non-operating shock. Along with providing enhanced protection against shock during handling and integration, SPS II now guards against kicks and jolts while the PC is running to reduce field failures. Like previous Fireball generations, the Fireball LCT also uses the Quantum-pioneered Data Protection System (DPS), which verifies essential functions in seconds to eliminate costly and unnecessary drive returns. Together, these systems deliver higher reliability and improved data integrity, while reducing drive returns and cutting processing and replacement costs.
