Hard drives

A hard disk drive, often abbreviated hard drive or HDD, is a magnetic storage device used for storing data. Data is written on the surface of a rotating disk that is coated with magnetic material and magnetized according to the recorded information. One of the main advantages of hard drives is the low price for capacity. The biggest drawback is its mechanism, which is fault-prone and slower than flash memory. Hard drives are ideal for storing or streaming large amounts of data.

Data storage properties

i

Data storage properties

A data storage device is a device for recording (storing) information (data). Recording can be done using virtually any form of energy, spanning from manual muscle power in handwriting, to acoustic vibrations in phonographic recording, to electromagnetic energy modulating magnetic tape and optical discs. A storage device may hold information, process information, or both. A device that only holds information is a recording medium. Devices that process information (data storage equipment) may either access a separate portable (removable) recording medium or a permanent component to store and retrieve information.

Buffer size

Buffer size

In computer science, a buffer is a region of a physical memory storage used to temporarily hold data while it is being moved from one place to another. Typically, the data is stored in a buffer as it is retrieved from an input device (such as a mouse) or just before it is sent to an output device (such as speakers). However, a buffer may be used when moving data between processes within a computer. This is comparable to buffers in telecommunication. Buffers can be implemented in a fixed memory location in hardware - or by using a virtual data buffer in software, pointing at a location in the physical memory. In all cases, the data stored in a data buffer, are stored on a physical storage media.

Disk sector size
i

Disk sector size

In computer disk storage, a sector is a subdivision of a track on a magnetic disk or optical disc. Each sector stores a fixed amount of user data. Traditional formatting of these storage media provides space for 512 bytes or 2048 bytes of user-accessible data per sector. Newer hard drives use 4096 byte (4 KB or 4K) Advanced Format sectors.

Maximum rotation speed
i

Maximum rotation speed

Rotational speed (sometimes called speed of revolution) tells how many complete rotations (i.e. revolutions or cycles) there are per time unit. It is therefore a cyclic frequency, measured in hertz (revolutions per second) in the SI System. The units revolutions per minute (rpm or 1/min) are more common in everyday life.

Rotational speed, for example, how fast a motor is running. Rotational speed and angular speed are sometimes used as synonyms, but typically they are measured with a different unit.

Power consumption (standby)

In electrical engineering, power consumption refers to the electrical energy over time that must be supplied to an electrical appliance to maintain its operation. The power consumption is usually a result of power used to perform the intended function of the device plus additional "wasted" power that is dissipated as heat, vibration and/or electromagnetic waves.

Edition 25/2016- Bei der BarraCuda Pro handelt es sich um eine Helium-Festplatte, die gerade aufgrund der sehr großzügigen Kapazität eine interessante Alternative ist. Die HDD ist vergleichsweise schnell bei Lesen und Schreiben, zumal die Leistungs-Aufnahme dank der Helium-Füllung gering ist. Auch bleibt die Festplatte im Betrieb angenehm leise und kühl. Die Garantie vom Hersteller beträgt gute 5 Jahre, für den dauerhaften Einsatz bei Last ist die Desktop-Festplatte jedoch nicht ausgelegt. Der Preis liegt bei rund 480 Euro, vergleichbar große SSDs kosten mindestens das Fünffache.more

BarraCuda Pro (8TB, 3.5", Desktop)

Ideal für die Datenspeicherung. Games und Programme können sicher auch installiert werden, aber da empfehle ich in der heutigen Zeit eher SSDs..

Schnell und bis jetzt auch ziemlich leise. Die Zuverlässigkeit kann ich noch nicht beurteilen. Ich hoffe sie hält ein paar Jahre ;)

Works and is faster than WD, for instance; too early to know about durability

It works and it's fast. What will matter now is how durable and reliable it is, and there one must wait.
