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.

The official marketing text of Toshiba 40GB Parallel ATA as supplied by the manufacturer
Toshiba Storage Device Division introduces a new 1.8-inch Hard Disk Drive, the MK4009GAL.

It is based on perpendicular magnetic recording and has a capacity of 40GB. Through the use of a new Low Insertion Force connector (LIF), it is 7 millimetres shorter than current Toshiba drives. This allows manufacturers the possibility to produce even smaller consumer electronics products.

The new drive incorporates the ATA-6 interface and offer 8MB buffer memory.

The MK4009GAL has been developed specifically for ultra-portable devices such as mp3 and multi-media players and Personal Video Recorders.
