Characteristics of the device.
Compression ratio*
The ratio between the uncompressed file size and compressed size. Thus a representation that compresses a 10MB file to 2MB has a compression ratio of 10/2 = 5, often notated as an explicit ratio, 5:1 (read "five" to "one"), or as an implicit ratio, 5/1.
Interface ports to connect pieces of equipment. USB (Universal Serial Bus) has become the most popular wired interface to connect peripherals. USB 2.0 supports speeds up to 480 Mbit/s (USB 1: 12 Mbit/s). The interface FireWire is also known as the IEEE 1394 standard. Enhanced IDE (EIDE)is sometimes referred to as Fast ATA, Fast IDE or ATA-2.
ATA/ATAPI-6 Ultra DMA mode 5
Mean time between failures (MTBF)
Statistical model used to indicate product/mechanism reliability; expressed in hours and percentage of duty cycle. This number (in hours) does not indicate the mean time before failure for a single unit/mechanism.
300000 h
Native capacity*
Actual medium capacity without applying compression.
40 GB
Compressed capacity*
The maximum storage capacity of a storage medium when applying data compression. Usually measured in bytes e.g. gigabytes (GB). Sometimes the conditions are mentioned for reaching the maximum capacity mentioned, like tape length, the number of storage units, or the type of storage equipment/medium.
104 GB
