Seagate IronWolf 6TB CMR

The Seagate IronWolf 6TB CMR hard disk is one of the high load internal HDDs for the NAS storage solution environment. The 3.5" format is designed chiefly for desktop PCs, data centres, and other data-processing devices. One of the main characteristics is clearly the rotational speed of the HDD. The 5400 RPM RPM should satisfy most typical users. The overall data capacity of the HDD is 6000 GB. The drive uses a 256 MB memory cache. All the data communication between the Seagate hard disk and the PC or other devices is facilitated using the SATA III interface.

  • Standard power consumption is 5,3 W, while in stand-by mode it makes 0.25 W
  • The data transfer is facilitated through the SATA III interface
  • Standard hard drives are admittedly more susceptible to physical damage, but they are also more affordable than the newer SSDs
  • RAID support allows for better data loss prevention

Other HDD Features

Platter hard disks have a notably special construction. Inside the enclosure there is a mechanism that uses moving platters, complete with hard disk heads that read and write the data. These moving parts are not particularly resistant against shock or impact, but this weak point is well-compensated by a great combo of a low price and great storage capacity. The crucial parameter that determines the speed of a platter hard disk is the number of platter revolutions per minute, generally known as RPM. In case of the Seagate IronWolf 6TB CMR, you would get 5400 RPM RPM. You can find these drives mainly in home PCs preferred by users who don't require high performance. Data transmission and overall stability is also impacted the embedded buffer memory known as cache. The Seagate hard disk is equipped with a 256 MB cache that stores the last data inputs for their speedy reading.

Connecting the Seagate HDD

If you want to mount the Seagate IronWolf 6TB CMR in the device of your choice, it must have a 3.5" slot. All data transfer is done via the SATA III interface with a speed of 3 Gbit/s. This technology ranks among the most popular HDD data transfer solutions available and delivers a speed of 600 MB/s.
