Hard disk drives are today's fastest permanent storage media and have a large capacity. For this two reasons they are the most used storage medium in computers and servers. When buying a new hard disk, there are three important things to consider:- The connection of the disk to the computer or other device you will be using it with has a big influence on the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk. Make sure the connection of the disk you buy is compatible with your computer!- The rotational speed is also important for the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk and determines the time it takes to find a file on the disk.- Last but not least, the storage capacity of the disk, i.e. the amount of data that can be stored on the disk.

Bad Need to use Molex connector if you use included SATA cable.
Bottom line After giving the RE2 500GB a test, I have to say I am impressed. I didnt expect it to beat out the Seagate like it did, in every single test. Since this is an enterprise class drive, I guess its to be expected. Whats not to be expected though, is t...
