Seagate's Elite 9 is 9GB -- reports here of backordering, others of
availability. Micropolis due out with an 8GB soon? (94/9/1)

The fastest (in sustained transfer rate) known 5.25" disk drive is the
ST12450W2HP 1.78GB Barracuda drive from Seagate. The Barracuda family
is large, so pay attention to the model number! It runs at 68-113
Mbits/sec., depending on head position (it's ZCAV). Assuming that data
rate is pre-format, and subtracting 20% for the format overhead, that
would be a sustained rate of 6.8-11 MB/sec. Of course, your mileage
WILL vary according to transfer size, locality, etc. (rdv,95/2/7)

Seagate announced a couple of weeks ago a 23GB disk drive. Reportedly
shipping in summer. (Brian A Berg <bberg@bswd.com>, 1996/3/29)
