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.

External AC adapter

A linear or switched-mode power supply (or in some cases just a transformer) that is built into the top of a plug is known as a "wall wart", "power brick", "plug pack", "plug-in adapter", "adapter block", "domestic mains adapter" or just "power adapter". They are even more diverse than their names; often with either the same kind of DC plug offering different voltage or polarity, or a different plug offering the same voltage.

Computer Bild Logo

Edition 18/2016 - Die Elements Desktop mit 4 TB aus dem Hause Western Digital macht im Test einen soliden Eindruck, für eine gute Gesamtnote reicht es jedoch nicht. Sie legt ein akzeptables Tempo an den Tag, jedoch sollte man sich bei großen Datenmengen dennoch etwas Zeit nehmen. Die Festplatte ist vergleichsweise schwer und bekommt Strom nur per Netzteil, zumal sie im Falltest defekte Sensoren aufweiste. Auch auf Software im Paket muss man hier verzichten.

Ich suche eine Festplatte als zentraler Speicher in einem Heimnetz. Ist diese Platte für den Dauerbetrieb geeignet? Wegen dem Stromverbrauch hätte ich lieber eine ohne Netzteil. Welche wäre geeignet?

Liegt wohl eher am Betriebssystem Linux als am Produkt. Unter Linux muss man halt vielfach selbst Hand anlegen. Wer es gerne bequem hat, benutzt ein anderes Betriebssystem. Bei mir funktioniert das Produkt schon seit längerem ohne Probleme.

I have only good experience from using multiple samples of this device. Performance and reliability have been excellent this far. I use these devices as permanently connected backup to Synology NAS units, as well as individual Time Machine disks directly connected to a number of Mac computers.

Warmly recommended.

I bought this particular model as I already have a 3T version of it in My Mac.... the only difference is the way that it's formatted and for some odd reason, the Mac version costs quite a bit more.

As far as quality, it's fast, it's easy and it seems to work flawlessly. My overall experience with Western Digital external disks has been very positive. I've never had one fail, I can't say that for other companies.

Will I buy another of the same? Most likely, especially if I can get it for a sale price like I did this one.
