    Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9

    I am simply pointing out that the PDF data sheet (see chart top of page 2) indicates that only drives with an "L" in the model number have FDB motors, and Maxtor is not currently refuting that detail in my correspondance with them.

    Does anyone know if the platter configuration identified on the drive? Also, there is inconsistency on the Maxtor website as to whether or not the motors are in fact Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB). The general overview implies they do, but the spec sheet has an asterisked note that says only the 6YxxxLO 2mb models have it. An email response from Maxtor to my request for clarification said that "Maxtor is rapidly moving to all FDB drives".
