MaXLine™ II and MaXLine Plus II
Industry-leading Capacity, Performance, And Reliability for Midline Applications

MaXLine drives provide large-capacity ATA disk storage so reliable, fast and cost-effective, it leaves traditional tape and optical solutions in the dust. At prices about the same as tape and optical, but with far superior capacity and access times, ATA drives are ideal for 24x7-duty situations where you may not need stored data all the time, but when you do need it, you need it now.
At 250GB and 300GB, MaXLine ATA drives provide greater storage capacity than regular ATA drives, and they offer the added benefit of ultra-reliability. For midline and other low-I/O secondary storage applications, they’re rated at better than 1 million hours MTTF. Maxtor stands behind MaXLine drives with a 5-year limited warranty.
