Hard Disk Drive Reference Guide

Even though traditional hard disk drives (HDD) are being threatened to a certain extent by solid state drives (SSD), they're still the most popular form of mass storage today. Hard drives are used in everything from servers to desktops and notebooks and offer higher storage capacities than any other form of storage. Hard drives are available in capacities up to 4TB for desktops and include value, green, performance and enterprise models. 2.5" notebook hard drives top out at 1TB.

We're in the process of refreshing our Hard Drive Reference Guide with updated images and content. If you have any questions or comments to the hard drive forums. If you have a suggestion or wish to help edit this guide, please contact us
