The 536DX series looks like any other Maxtor drive. Its appearance has not changed for years.
The Maxtor 536 DX series runs at a constant 5,400 rpm and is available in capacities of 30, 40, 60, 80 and even 100 GB. 2 MB buffer memory are present to speed up repeated or anticipated access. We measured a surface temperature of 41°C, which is is quite good - this series of drives won't heat up your tower case unnecessarily.
