Found an old 20gig HDD

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I found my old stash of computer parts and then I found an old drive. Here are the specs


Features/Specifications:

* Maxtor 20 GB UDMA/133 IDE Hard Drive

* General Features:
* 20 GB formatted capacity
* UDMA/133 transfer rate
* 7200 RPM spindle speed
* 2 MB Buffer
* 8 ms average seek time
* E-IDE interface
* 3.5-inch form factor

It's pretty loud. I'm going to format the guy but I'm not sure if I'm going to keep him in my sig rig. Its amazing it still works

It reminds me of my first computer that had a 15gig Hard Drive. Those were the days

I looked on newegg... they don't even sell 20gigs anymore. I could probably get like 20 dollars for it. A dollar a gig.

Well, I guess it's worth a try, although I'm not sure many people will go for "It's a classic!" line.

In 1995 I did an upgrade on my Pentium I 75MHz PC, I paid $700 for 8Mb of ram and $450 for a 540Mb HDD. I was still running Windows 3.1.

That must have been the bleeding edge back then.
