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 facilitate reading and writing of data. These moving parts are not particularly resistant against shock or impact, but at the same time you get a great combo of a low price and great storage capacity. The crucial criterion that affects the speed of a hard drive is the number of rotations per minute (RPM). In case of the WD Red Plus 6TB, you can look forward to 5640 RPM RPM. File access speed and stability is also determined by the disk buffer, usually called cache. The Western Digital hard disk features a 128 MB cache that stores the last data inputs for their speedy reading.

Connecting the Western Digital HDD

In order to mount the WD Red Plus 6TB in your PC or other device, it must be equipped with a 3.5" slot. All communication with the computer happens using the SATA III interface with a speed of 3 Gbit/s. This technology is one of the most popular HDD data transfer solutions available and delivers a speed of 600 MB/s.
