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.

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.

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.

Was ist der unterschied zwischen dem WD30PURX oder WD30PURZ?
Der Preis ist gleich....

Accepted answer

Laut meinen Informationen handelt es sich dabei um das gleiche Produkt, allerdings mit neuer Modell- und Labelbezeichnung. Ob es dennoch nicht kommunizierte Verbesserungen seitens des Herstellers gibt, kann ich Ihnen leider nicht sagen. Zum gleichen Preis, empfehle ich Ihnen zum aktuellsten Modell (Z anstatt X) zu greifen, also WD30PURZ.
