The Seagate Momentus® ST9160821AS hard drive incorporates perpendicular recording technology for maximum capacity, reliability and performance in demanding operating environments. The perpendicular recording allows Seagate to fit 160GB into a 2.5" standard notebook drive.
The SATA-150 interface, 8MB cache and 5400RPM combine to get an 11.0ms random read seek time. It does this while only drawing 2.0 watts to extend battery life.
This drive is ideal for notebooks, external storage devices, Tablet PCs, printers and copiers, and non-mission critical blade servers.
- SATA 1.5 Gb/s InterfaceThe next-generation SATA interface supports up to 1.5 Gb/s data transfer rates and point-to-point connections to allow the Seagate Momentus 5400.3 to deliver optimum performance, efficiency, convenience and flexibility.
- Perpendicular RecordingPerpendicular recording technology enables industry-leading capacity in existing standard form factors and improves performance by increasing data density while reducing moving parts for enhanced reliability.
