The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Article code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product code if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.

Hard disk drives are today\'s fastest permanent storage media and have a large capacity. For this two reasons they are the most used storage medium in computers and servers. When buying a new hard disk, there are three important things to consider:\
- The connection of the disk to the computer or other device you will be using it with has a big influence on the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk. Make sure the connection of the disk you buy is compatible with your computer!\
- The rotational speed is also important for the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk and determines the time it takes to find a file on the disk.\
- Last but not least, the storage capacity of the disk, i.e. the amount of data that can be stored on the disk.

Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the data-sheets can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by IBM: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

The short editorial description of IBM 00N8208 Hard Disk Drive
18.2GB, Ultra160 SCSI, 3.5"

Marketing text IBM 00N8208 Hard Disk Drive

The official marketing text of IBM 00N8208 Hard Disk Drive as supplied by the manufacturer
IBM has enhanced its SCSI hard disk drive (HDD) lineup with the latest generation offerings that provide higher performance and increased capacity.

The new offerings provide customers with:

- Spindle speeds available in top-performing 10,000 rpm and the value-oriented 7200 rpm
- Support for the new Ultra160 SCSI protocol, doubling interface speeds from last year and enabling more drives per cable
- Perfect SCSI solutions for non-hot-swap Netfinity servers, IntelliStation workstations, and many PC 300 desktop systems

The 10,000 rpm offerings provide an easy way to extend the performance range of entry servers handling demanding transaction processing tasks and of workstations dealing with enormous realtime video data files. The 7200 rpm drives provide a value oriented choice for less demanding tasks, and because of their lower power and cooling needs, are the only SCSI drives qualified for use in PC 300's.

These HDDs have Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.), which warn of predictable forms of impending hard drive failure. Drives predicting failure within the warranty period are eligible for replacement, before failure, at IBM's expense. S.M.A.R.T. is compatible with IBM S.M.A.R.T. Reaction software that can perform unattended backup of customer data from the drives before failure.

These new drives benefit from a drive quality, reliability, compatibility, and testing program that is second to none. IBM installs and tests millions of HDDs. Ongoing quality management in support of our system production provides our options customers with drives continuously selected from among the best quality HDDs available. Offered with a three-year limited warranty, these drives also take on the warranty of the IBM PC system in which they are installed. For many IBM PCs this can entitle these drives to on-site service for up to three years.
