Designed for use in desktop systems, external enclosures, and consumer RAID 0 and 1 applications, this drive connects to your system's 3.5" drive bay using the SATA 6 Gb/s interface.

This 2TB drive also features a rotational speed of 5400 rpm, a 64MB cache to help ensure uninterrupted data transfers, and a sustained data transfer rate of up to 147 MB/s. Additionally, the drive is built with features to help ensure it will have a strong operational life, with 300,000 load/unload cycles, <1 in 1014non-recoverable read errors per bits read, and NoTouch Ramp Load technology. NoTouch Ramp Load technology helps ensure that the recording head never touches the disk media.
