The Seagate SkyHawk 6TB hard disk belongs among the high load internal HDDs for monitoring systems with non-stop operation. The 3.5" format is designed chiefly for desktop computers and data centres. One of the most important characteristics is clearly the number of revolutions per minute (RPM). 5400 RPM should satisfy the demands of any casual user. The overall data capacity of the HDD is 6000 GB. The storage features a 256 MB memory cache. All the data communication takes place via the SATA III interface.
Platter hard disks have a notably special construction. Inside the drive there is a mechanism that utilises moving platters accompanied by disk read and write heads. These moving parts can be damaged by a shock or impact, but on the upside, this design also delivers its amazing price/capacity ratio. The key criterion that affects the speed of a hard disk is the number of platter revolutions per minute, generally known as RPM. With the Seagate SkyHawk 6TB, you get 5400 RPM RPM. You can find these drives mainly in laptops and other home devices that aren't built for high performance. File access speed and overall stability is also impacted by the disk buffer, usually called cache. The Seagate HDD features a 256 MB cache that stores the last data inputs for their fast retrieval and reading.
If you want to mount the Seagate SkyHawk 6TB in your laptop or other device, it requires a 3,5" slot. Data sharing takes place via the SATA III interface, boasting a standard speed of 6 Gbit/s. This technology ranks among the most popular HDD data transfer solutions available and delivers a throughput of 600 MB/s. The dimensions of the HDD are 101,8 × 146,9 × 26,1 mm.
