  • 10 025rpm;
  • 61Gigabit per square inch maximum areal density;
  • 5/3/2/1 glass disk platter;
  • 10/5/3/2 GMR recording head;
  • 250 G@2ms non-operating shock;
  • 15 G@11ms operating shock;
  • 2.99ms average latency;
  • 4.7/4.5/4.3 ms average seek time (read);
  • 1078Mbit/s maximum internal transfer rate;
  • 89MB/s maximum sustained data transfer rate;
  • Ultra 320 SCSI and 2Gb/s FCAL interfaces;
