Seagate ST6000DM001 overview

  • 1Description

Designed with a 6-head/12-disk configuration and 512E bytes per sector, the 6TB Desktop SATA III 3.5" Internal Hard Drive from Seagate is an internal drive with a storage capacity of 6TB, an average read/write data rate of 180 MB/s, and a maximum sustainable data transfer rate of 220 MB/s. 6TB of storage provides the necessary space to store large files, as well as a variety of multimedia content. This hard drive serves a variety of purposes including desktop or all-in-one PCs, home servers, and direct-attached storage devices (DAS).

The SATA III 6 Gb/s interface allows for native hot swapping and fast data transfers and is also backwards compatible with SATA II 3 Gb/s and SATA 1.5 Gb/s standards, while the 128MB cache helps to ensure uninterrupted data transfers. As reliability and data integrity are a major area of concern, this hard drive is also built with 300,000 load/unload cycles, 1 per 1014 non-recoverable read errors per bits (max), up to 2,400 power-on hours, and a yearly workload of 55TB.

All of these characteristics help to provide piece of mind that your data will remain safe and secure. This hard drive is protected by a limited 2-year warranty.

Seagate AcuTrac Technology
Seagate AcuTrac technology helps enable increases in a drive's tracks per inch, or TPI. Hard drives store data in concentric circles (tracks) on its platters and the more tightly these tracks are packed together, the more the TPI and disk capacity grow. AcuTrac technology places a secondary actuator further down the drive's suspension arm, bringing it closer to the head and therefore tightening control. The secondary nano-actuator fundamentally enables TPI improvement by directing the head more accurately to individual tracks, even at the nanometer scale. The two actuator elements provide a larger stroke and range of motion for the actuator. This not only helps increase a drive's TPI, but also helps tracking accuracy, drive performance, and vibration resistance
