SATA 3gb/s HDD (Hard Drive)

Browse through the products under this category for all your SATA 3Gb/s HDD needs. If you are eager to tune up your PC for performance and storage capacity, the replacement of system hardware is the surest way to go. The upgrade to a SATA 3Gbps will actually help you squeeze big performance gains from your system.

The SATA 3Gbps is representative of the second revision of SATA technology that has transfer rates of 3Gbps and can attain a bandwidth throughput of 300MB/s. The 3Gbps hard drives are compatible with the variations of SATA – backward compatible with SATA 1.5 Gb/s and forward compatible with SATA-III.

SATA II Hard drive vs SSD

The big move has been to solid-state drives (SSD) to improve performance. If you've not migrated to an SSD, you are missing out and have not experienced responsiveness. Apps launch faster, Windows boots, and file transfers happen faster with SSDs.

With prices having dipped to about $1/GB, you have no reason not to get a SATA 3Gb/s drive to optimize performance. If you have the SATA 3Gb s port, you have no reason not to update to higher performance hard drive disks. SATA drives are generally high capacity and low cost which gives a good value in terms of low cost per gigabyte of storage.

The most common SATA 3Gb s HDD is the 7.2K SATA but there are many other speed offerings right from 5.4K to 10K RPM. These hard drives are best suited for data storage, home users, and for backups. The best way of measuring speed is through inputs outputs per seconds (IOPS) that defines data throughput – the actual read speed and write speed. The 7.2K SATA 3Gb/s drive will operate at about 80 IOPS. SSDs with SATA ports/connectors have markedly higher speeds and can achieve anything between 4,600 and 75,000 IOPS depending on the type.

SATA 3gb s HDD Options

You can get a wide range of storage capacities for the SATA 3Gbps HDDs right from 500GB and reaching the 8TB mark. We recommend storage capacities between 1 and 3TB since they offer good value for cost and capacity. That said, we have the following options: 1TB-7.2K RPM, 2TB-7.2K RPM, 3TB-7.2K RPM, 4TB-7.2K RPM that are real value for money as well as lower capacity SATA drives for home users and backups such as 160GB-5.4K RPM, 160GB-7.2K RPM, 200GB-7.2K RPM, 250GB-5.4K RPM, 250GB-7.2K RPM, 300GB-10K RPM, 320GB-7.2K RPM, and 750GB-7.2K RPM.

The reliability of SATA is not comparable to that of SAS drives that are designed for high demanding applications. SATA 3Gb/s HDDs are not designed for use in servers and other high demanding applications where high availability and speed requirements are a top priority. These drives are best suited for lower-level demands such as backups and for desktop PCs for home use. The mean time before failure (MTBF) for SATA drives is about 700,000 hours compared to 1.2 million hours for SAS hard drives.

Another outstanding feature is that of power consumption whereby SATA 3 Gb/s drives are power rated at 10 to 12 watts for normal operating conditions and consume 4 to 6 watts of power when idle.

We have SATA-II-rated cables of all lengths up to 1 meter in length. The cables are coupled with SATA connectors with the typical 7 pins for data and 15 pins for power. Check on all other SATA technology including SATA controllers, SATA connectors, and SATA adapters.

You will be courting disaster if SATA 3Gb s HDDs are used for high I/O applications and mission-critical websites. Performance issues, downtime, data corruption, and data loss are some of the challenges you may encounter. Talk to us and we can match you with the right SATA 3gbps hard drive disks to meet your speed and performance needs. SATA 3Gb/s hard drives are the best choice for cheap servers and home use.
