Standard HDDs are notable for their construction. Inside the drive there is a mechanism that uses moving platters, complete with disk read and write heads. These mechanical parts don't take shocks and impact well, but this weak point is well-compensated by an excellent price/storage capacity ratio. The crucial criterion that determines the speed of a hard drive is the number of platter revolutions per minute, generally known as RPM. With the WD Red Plus 12TB, we have 7200 RPM revolutions per minute. This should delight the more demanding users, such as graphic designers, gamers, video editors, and people who tend to use large amounts of data. Data transmission and stability is also determined the embedded buffer memory known as cache. The Western Digital HDD is equipped with a 256 MB cache that keeps the last written data for their prompt retrieval and reading.
