All three versions (18, 36, 72 GB) look pretty much the same, and share the following features:
- 3.5" hard drive, 1" height
- 18 GB per platter
- 10,025 rpm rotation speed
- 4.5 to 5.0 ms seek time
- Ultra160 SCSI interface
- 8 MB buffer
- MTBF 1,200,000 hours
We were quite surprised at how little noise the drive makes when running at idle. Even though its speed is 10,000 rpm, this drive just did not produce much noise. Of course, the access sound is perceptible and still allows experienced users to recognize it as an enterprise hard drive. In fact, the noise it produces during access it is clearly louder than that which any actual IDE drive would produce.

At the bottom of the drive are several jumpers that have to be set in order to chose an ID, termination, termination power and some other things. As usual, a quick reference has been printed onto the top of the drive, so that you don't have to use a manual in order to set up the drive.
This picture shows the bottom of the Fujitsu drive. The jumpers (blue) are on the left.
