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 Seagate: 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 official marketing text of Seagate U-series 40GB HDD as supplied by the manufacturer
On drives less than 33.8GB, Limit Capacity jumper sets the default cylinder translation to 4092 to solve issues with certain BIOS that only auto-detect. Total available sectors are still at full capacity
as reported via Identify Drive data words 52 - 61. On drives greater than 33.8GB, Limit Capacity jumper changes total available sectors as reported via Identify Drive data words 60-61 to 33.8GB. The ATA Set Features F1 sub-command will cause Identify Data words 60-61 to report the true full capacity. Third party partitioning software may be needed to achieve full capacity when using this option jumper.
