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.
100GB Parallel ATA
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 Toshiba: 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.

Marketing text Toshiba 100GB Parallel ATA

The official marketing text of Toshiba 100GB Parallel ATA as supplied by the manufacturer
By using updated hard disk drive technology, Toshiba has launched the industry's most advanced 2.5-inch hard disk drive to date. The MK1031GAS is the world's first 100GB 2.5-inch HDD with an areal density of 80 gigabits of data per square inch. The key to achieving this was replacing the Pico Sliders attached to the drive’s heads, and which maintain the appropriate distance from the disk during read and write operations, with Femto Sliders that are 35 percent smaller and much lighter. Advances were also achieved in the thin-film technology for both the head and media.
The new drive’s operating shock resistance of 325G (2msec) is 50 percent higher than in Toshiba’s current 2.5-inch HDD, due to employment of the smaller, lighter Femto Sliders in combination with a lighter head-suspension and head arm.

Power consumption of the MK1031GAS is approximately 20 percent lower on average than the company’s current drive range due to pulse width modulation that controls disk rotation speed by switching the power supply to the spindle motor on and off at a controlled frequency. A DC-DC converter is also used in the power unit.

As notebook PCs become increasingly popular, lightweight and contain sophisticated multi-media options, this new drive will be the premier hard disk drive for advanced mobile computing applications.
