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 family:
The product family is a generic trademark of a brand to indicate a very wide range of products, that can encompass multiple categories. We include product family in the Icecat product title.
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.
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.
Category :
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 Seagate: 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 Seagate MaXLine 500GB HDD as supplied by the manufacturer
Native 3.0Gb SATA, large capacity, highly reliable hard drives
for reference storage and data protection.

MaXLine Pro 500 drives are designed to serve the capacity-sensitive portion of the enterprise market. These drives deliver the best value on a per gigabyte basis while offering advanced features, placing the MaXLine Pro 500 drive at the forefront in secondary online storage applications.
The advanced features designed into the MaXLine Pro 500 drive separate it from other drives built for nearline storage. With rotational vibration protection up to 25 radians/sec2 and accelerated error recovery, the MaXLine Pro 500 drive delivers the capacity, performance, and data integrity required by the most demanding nearline applications.
Users are implementing enhanced data protection solutions such as disk-to-disk backup, point-in-time copies, snapshot clones and remote replication or managing reference data, MaXLine Pro 500 drives are an ideal choice. They offer 500GB of storage capacity, 3.0Gb SATA and ATA/133 interfaces, and have been designed for a mean time to failure of 1 million hours in medium-I/O duty cycle applications.
MaXLine Pro 500 drives provide new features to better serve the enterprise ATA market, such as:
- Rotational Vibration Compensation—enables the drive to withstand higher rotational vibration (25 rads/sec2) from adjacent drives, minimizing performance degradation caused by excessive vibration in multi-drive environments.
- Accelerated Error Recovery, for improved performance in RAID environments, without reduction in data integrity.
- Internal EDC that protects data integrity within the drive.
- Fly Height Adjust Technology—optimizes performance by maintaining an ideal head-to-disk clearance across the drives’ specified operating temperatures.
- Easy Code Load, which provides a simple firmware download process with compatibility safeguards and ease of use.
- Pattern Fill, is a RAID initialization feature which allows a known data pattern to be written to the drive.
- Expanded Drive Self Test is a more extensive self-test to help customers eliminate false failures and validate good drives
