Hard dsk and Hard Drives
Type : External Power Source Capacity : 5 TB The Desktop HDD 5TB uses 1TB platters, just like Seagate's other most recent 3.5'' drives. In this case, the drive contains five such platters, which is relatively special, given that hard drives featuring such a large amount of internal disks are fairly uncommon, to say the least.
Higher areal densities lead to faster sequential transfers because more data pass under the drive head in a given moment as the platter spins. Thus, the Caviar Green 3TB's 750GB platters should offer higher transfer rates than anyone else.
