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.

Features & Benefits:

- The new Serial ATA interface offers data transfer speeds up to 50% faster than the current parallel ATA interface:
- Data rates up to 150MB/sec
- High performance 7200rpm rotational speed
- Improved cabling:
- Eliminates the current 18-inch (46cm) cable length limitation
- Thinner cable improves cable routing and airflow through the system
- Point-to-Point connections eliminate the need for Master/Slave settings on drives, simplifying installation
- Superior end-to-end error checking over Parallel ATA helps increase data integrity
- Includes Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) which helps to predict and warn of some impending drive failures
- Ontrack Disk Manager software is included, which prepares the drive for use, migrates data from older, slower drives, and overcomes legacy hardware, BIOS, and operating system problems
- Reliable access to data - IBM helps verify compatibility through testing which is among the most rigorous in the industry
- Backed by renowned IBM Service and Support.
