Here are all of the models currently in the database for this manufacturer and drive width. Models are sorted into sections by platter density.

Some tips:

The total capacity of each individual model is shown beside each model number.
A platter-head ratio is shown next to the total capacity tag in brackets. It works very simply: a (3/6) ratio indicates three disks and six read/write heads. Models that "waste" some amount of their actual total capacity in order to fit into certain capacity brackets (such as a 320GB unit based on one 500GB platter and two heads) are marked accordingly as [short-stroked].
Miscellaneous details of possible interest (unusual rotational speeds, strange marketing decisions, and so on) are noted if deemed necessary.
Maxtor drives went out of production before 2007, but as I like the idea of this site being about HDD history along with about platter capacity, this Maxtor page exists.

DiamondMax VL 40 (5400RPM, 2MB cache, ATA-100 interface)

31024H1 10GB (1/1)
31535H2 15GB (1/2 [short-stroked])

5T060H6 60GB (3/6)


531DX (5400RPM, 2MB cache, ATA-100 interface)

2R010H1 10GB (1/1)
Note: Early batches are marked as "Maxtor DM VL 15" on their labels.


541DX (5400RPM, 2MB cache, ATA-100 interface)

2B008H1 8.4GB (1/1 [short-stroked])
2B010H1 10GB (1/1)



30-34GB/platter Section (all drives under here use platters that can hold 30-34GB of data apiece.)

531DX (5400RPM, 2MB cache, ATA-100 interface)

2R015H1 15GB (1/1)
Note: Early batches are marked as "Maxtor DM VL 15" (as in DiamondMax VL 15?) on their labels. Perhaps it's the name these were originally going to be marketed under.


536DX (5400RPM, 2MB cache, ATA-100 interface)

4W030H2 30GB (1/2)
4W040H3 40GB (2/3 [short-stroked])

4D030H2 30GB (1/2)

4K040H2 40GB (1/2)
4K060H3 60GB (2/3)
4K080H4 80GB (2/4)
Note: Very visibly Quantum designs with the Maxtor name on. Why Maxtor had these in production alongside its own D540X-4D models, though, is beyond me.


D540X-4D (5400RPM, 2MB cache, ATA-100 interface)

4D020H1 20GB (1/1)
4D040H2 40GB (1/2)

6L060L3 60GB (2/3)
6L080J4 80GB (2/4)
6L080L4 80GB (2/4)
Note: "Jx" suffix indicates the use of ball bearings; "Lx" suffix indicates FDBs.
Note 2: These were certainly designed by Quantum's engineers, not Maxtor's.



60GB/platter Section (all drives under here use platters that can hold 60GB of data apiece.)

Fireball 3 (5400RPM, 2MB cache, ATA-133 interface)

6Y060M0 60GB (1/2)


DiamondMax 16 (5400RPM, 2MB cache, ATA-133 interface)

4R060J0 60GB (1/2)
4R060L0 60GB (1/2)
Note: "J0" suffix indicates the use of ball bearings; "L0" suffix indicates FDBs.


MaXLine Plus II (7200RPM, 8MB cache, ATA-133 interface, rated for 24/7 operation)

7Y180P0 180GB (3/6)



80-83GB/platter Section (all drives under here use platters that can hold 80-83GB of data apiece.)

Fireball 3 (5400RPM, 2MB cache, ATA-133 interface)

DiamondMax Plus 8 (7200RPM, 2MB cache, ATA-133 interface)

6E040L0 40GB (1/1)
Note: Hundreds of thousands of billions of these things were placed in bottom-of-the-barrel PCs from mom-and-pop shops between 2003-2006. I've got a stack of them, myself; a few still work perfectly (as of 2015), others were dead when pulled.

6Y250P0 250GB (8MB cache) (3/6)
*Note: A "2" as the second character of the serial number identifies a single-platter 6Y080L0. I don't know if this also applies to the 6Y080P0 and 6Y080M0 models (let alone if those models were also, at all, produced at some point with 60GB platters, like the 6Y080L0 was).


DiamondMax Plus 9 (7200RPM, 8MB cache, SATA-150 interface)

Note: The DiamondMax 17 series is Maxtor's last completely in-house-designed line before the Seagate buyout. Subsequent DiamondMax lines (21, 22, etc) are actually just Seagate Barracudas with the Maxtor logo on (as such, check the Seagate 3.5" list for those models).
