Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The Hitachi Ultrastar A7K3000 Internal SATA Hard Drive (2TB) is highly rated for its extra MTBF up to 2.0 million hours. It represents the fifth-generation Hitachi 5-platter mechanical design for the high quality and reliability. The Ultrastar A7K3000 delivers best data results by reducing downtime, eliminating service calls and keeping TCO to a minimum.
SATA III 6Gb/s interface
Has 2TB data storage capacity. Please note that some systems will only support up to 2.19TB of this capacity
Fifth-generation HGST 5-platter mechanical design
Offers a rotational speed of 7200rpm
Data buffer is 64MB
Capable of data transfer rates of up to 600MB/s
Reliable performance, with a MTBF (mean time between failures) of 2.0 million hr
DSA (dual stage actuator) and enhanced RVS (rotational vibration safeguard) offer robust performance in multi-drive operations. In an enclosure with 4, 5, or more drives, the spinning of the motors at 7200rpm can create excess vibration. The DSA keeps the heads over the track, which means there are fewer chances of re-reads or re-writes on the tracks. This improves transfer speeds. The HDA (head disk assembly) has the RVS to keep vibration caused by the spinning discs to a minimum
Used in decision support and RAID, disk-to-disk backup and archiving, and RAID array applications
Can be used in cloud storage, network attached storage, and data warehousing and mining environments
Greater capacity and reduced power consumption compared to the previous-generation Ultrastar A7K2000. Achieves a 59% reduction in watts during low RPM idle mode, and consumes less than 1W in standby / sleep modes. The drive features a halogen-free design, which, together with its power-efficient operation, gives it an EcoTrac classification for being environmentally-friendly
24x7 availability: Designed to be used around the clock at peak performance levels
