Sensational ATA-100 EIDE HD
Offering capacities as large as 200 GB, the Western Digital high-performance family of EIDE Hard Drive is equipped with an 8 MB bufferthe largest buffer available today in a desktop EIDE hard drive, delivering data to users faster than any hard drive in its class.
These high-performance hard drives provide a higher percentage of cache hits and significantly faster time to data than industry-standard 2 MB versions. Within the complex operations of hard drives, the buffer is used to hold the results of recent reads from the disk, and also to "pre-fetch" information that is likely to be requested in the near future. The use of an increased buffer improves the performance by reducing the number of physical accesses to the disk and allowing data to stream from the disk uninterrupted by mechanical operations.
This drive holds
- 85 two-hour DVD-quality movies or
- 300 hours of VHS-quality video or
- 177 days of around-the-clock MP3 audio or
- 75,000 vivid digital photos or
- 427 action-packed games!
