Maxtor has started shipping its 20GB 541DX hard drives to OEMs in volume. It claims the 5400 RPM Ultra ATA/100 hard drive offers a higher areal density than rival products.

It is available in a single-head, single-platter configuration, and comes with 10GB, 15GB or 20GB of storage.

It is also 38 per cent smaller than conventional drives - with a 17-mm form factor.

The company said today that retail prices for the drive would be available later this year. It is also trying to get the drive into other non-PC consumer electronics, such as set-top boxes. ®
