How much speed do I gain in my Beige G3 if I replace the original 4 gig Fireball with a $199 Maxtor 20 gig drive?
Tested 9/3/99.

Conclusion: Adding this drive nearly doubled the write speed of the Beige G3. It even outperformed a Yosemite G3/400 whose MacBench rating was 1090 (6 gig Fireball). It's a no brainer for any Mac user with the need for a larger, faster IDE drive.
