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 20GB Parallel ATA hard disk drive HDD as supplied by the manufacturer

Due to a great demand from Toshiba SDD's vertical market customers, the MK-2023GAS is one of the most successful hard disk drives for OEM. As opposed to the bigger capacity Toshiba drives, this 20GB HDD fits neatly into a niche market of small form factor, low capacity storage devices. Ideally, the MK-2023GAS is used in multi-media applications such as MP3 players and external storage devices with new applications being developed rapidly by telecommunication and automotive consortiums/companies.
