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 Samsung: 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.

Disk Drive
Hard drive capacity*
The maximum storage capacity of the hard disk, usually measured in bytes e.g. GB.
60 GB
Host interface*
The way that a hard disk drive (HDD) is connected to the rest of the computer through a 'bus' such as ATA or SCSI.
Hard disk rotational speed*
The rotational speed of a hard disk expressed in rotations per minute. The faster the better.
5400 RPM
Hard drive size*
The amount of data that the hard drive can store.
Drive device, buffer size
A reserved segment of memory within a drive device that is used to hold the data being processed.
8 MB
Hard disk average seek time
12 ms
Full stroke seek
The “full stroke seek” is the time required to travel from the first to the last track of the disk.
22 ms
Average latency
The average duration before a device can start with a job (for example reading a file from a hard disk).
5.6 ms
Disk Drive
Track to track seek time (read/write)
2 ms
Bytes per sector
Mean time between failures (MTBF)
Statistical model used to indicate product/mechanism reliability; expressed in hours and percentage of duty cycle. This number (in hours) does not indicate the mean time before failure for a single unit/mechanism.
330000 h
Other features
Hard disk transfer rate
The internal hard disk transfer rate refers to the actual speed that the drive can read bits from the surface of the platter, or write bits to the surface of the platter.
428 Mbit/s
Drive device, transfer rate
150 MB/s
