The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
73.4GB U320 SCSI
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.

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.

Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the product data-sheet can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by IBM: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

The official marketing text of IBM 73.4GB U320 SCSI as supplied by the manufacturer
Double your throughput in select IBM eServer xSeries servers with the next generation of high-speed Ultra320 SCSI hard disk drives (HDDs), now with the new Ultra-Slim tray form factor. Ultra320 SCSI drives provide top-of-the-line performance for business-critical, disk-intensive applications such as e-business, transaction processing, data mining and data warehousing. Ultra320 SCSI technology combines interface data transfer rates of up to 320MBps, reduced overhead and enhanced flow control to help deliver dramatic performance gains. Improved diagnostics and data protection, as well as hot-swap capabilities with direct docking, help reduce downtime. For even greater reliability, you can create high-performance RAID arrays. Simply connect your drives to either an onboard Ultra320 SCSI controller with integrated mirroring capabilities or an IBM ServeRAID-5i Controller, available on select xSeries servers.

Features and Benefits:

- New Ultra-Slim tray form factor helps optimize storage capacity of supported systems
- Ultra320 SCSI interface provides wide bandwidth for multi-drive, concurrent, streaming data transfers
- 10,000rpm HDDs deliver solid reliability and excellent performance
- Predictive Failure Analysis can alert you of a problem before it occurs.
