We all need a hard drive, and it is the hard drive’s responsibility to store data on you PC, laptop or music device – documents, music, pictures, videos and operating systems are stored on your trusty hard drive.
It doesn’t matter how big or small your data, there is a drive out there to do the job, you only have to browse some of the capacity options on this site to see that. But you know from what you use your computer for, ie. surfing the net, you only need a relatively small capacity drive compared to someone who likes downloading films, who need a large capacity drive.
Hard drives come in many different interfaces, some are obsolete and some the latest technology. Being an independent stockist we hold them all. MFM, ESDI, IDE, SCSI, SATA, SAS, USB, ESATA plus many variants.
Each interface has its own qualities but currently the most in demand are:
SATA – This is the current standard connection for internal hard drives
SAS – This is the number one choice for enterprise environments (server networks)
Hard drive speed is an important factor in how quickly your computer will work, so you can work it out yourself… one of the following will most certainly find the file you are looking for quicker than the other 5400, 7200, 10000 or 15000 rpm.
