500 GB 7200 RPM 2.5" Hard Drive

Not for sale

Product code: IF107-071

Product Overview

There are two things about this hard drive that make it awesome.

(1) Its storage capacity rocks. With 500 GB, you could store:

  • 1500 albums written by normal artists, or one song written by Bull of Heaven.
  • Every Bollywood film released in two months (about 150 DVD-quality, full length movies)
  • The Entire James Bond Collection in Blu-Ray Quality
  • 17000 eBooks
  • Half of this picture of Shanghai

(2) Lightning speed. At 7200 RPM, the edge of the spinning platter travels at 65 MPH, yielding disk-to-buffer transfer rates up to 1030 Mbits/sec. That means it takes .001 second for a million bits to transfer to the buffer. By comparison, a housefly takes three times that long to beat its wings. What this actually means is that your data is going to load really, really fast, and file transfers between devices are going to be bottlenecked by the connections themselves, and not the hard drive. Luckily, this hard drive is connected via SATA connection, which has one of the fastest data transfer rates available.

Compatibility

  • All MacBooks and MacBook Pros (excluding MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Retina)
  • All Intel Mac minis
  • All Sony PS3 and PS3 Slim consoles
