Product Specification of Hitachi 0F12455 Hard Drive
The 0F12455 Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 is a hard disk drive (HDD) designed for use in servers, storage arrays, and other enterprise-grade applications. In this article, we will explain the features and specifications of this HDD in detail.
Capacity and Performance
The 0F12455 Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 has a capacity of 2 terabytes (TB), which means it can store up to 2 trillion bytes of data. The drive spins at a speed of 7,200 revolutions per minute (RPM), which is faster than most consumer-grade HDDs. This high RPM allows the drive to read and write data faster, making it ideal for applications that require high data transfer rates.
Interface and Buffer
The 0F12455 Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 uses a Serial ATA (SATA) interface with a maximum data transfer rate of 6 gigabits per second (Gbps). The SATA interface is commonly used in computer systems and provides a reliable and easy-to-use interface for data transfer.
The drive also features a 64 megabyte (MB) buffer, which is used to temporarily store data that is being read from or written to the disk. The larger the buffer, the faster the drive can transfer data to and from the computer system.
Form Factor and Dimensions
The 0F12455 Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 is a 3.5-inch internal hard drive, which is the standard size for desktop and server HDDs. The drive has a height of 25.4 millimeters (mm) and is designed to fit into drive bays that support the 3.5-inch form factor.
Reliability and Durability
The 0F12455 Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 is designed to be a reliable and durable HDD for enterprise applications. The drive has a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) rating of 2 million hours, which means that the drive is expected to operate for an average of 2 million hours before failing.
In addition to the MTBF rating, the drive also features a number of technologies that help to improve its reliability and durability. These technologies include:
- Rotational Vibration Safeguard (RVS): RVS technology helps to minimize the effects of vibration on the drive. This is important in enterprise environments where multiple drives may be operating in close proximity to each other.
- Thermal Flyheight Control (TFC): TFC technology helps to maintain a consistent distance between the read/write head and the disk surface. This helps to prevent data loss due to head crashes, which can occur when the head comes into contact with the disk surface.
- Head Load/Unload: Head load/unload technology helps to prevent the head from coming into contact with the disk surface when the drive is not in use. This helps to prevent damage to the disk surface and extend the life of the drive.
In summary, the 0F12455 Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 is a high-performance, reliable, and durable HDD designed for use in enterprise applications. With a capacity of 2TB, a speed of 7,200 RPM, and a SATA interface with a maximum data transfer rate of 6Gbps, the drive is well-suited for applications that require high data transfer rates. The drive also features a 64MB buffer and a number of technologies that help to improve its reliability and durability, including RVS, TFC, and head load/unload.

About Refurbished Products
When it comes to storing files and processing information, it is difficult to shove the impressive SATA hard drives aside. Although many people tend to regard hard disk drives as old technology, the new highly-performing variants have raised the bar. One of the most impressive variants is hard drives with the SATA interface and transfer speed of up to 6Gbps.
These are among the best drives to buy presently. They come with flash-speed disks that load several times faster than traditional hard drives. Another added advantage is that they come in either 2.5-inch sizes or 3.5-inch sizes. Users can find SATA 6Gbps hard drives that will nicely fit their case or enclosure.
SATA 6Gbps hard drives are designed to offer maximum performance. They connect to servers, PCs, or desktop computers via SATA 6Gbps cables. Despite their compact 2.5" to 3.5" sizes, they feature a dynamic cache of up to 64MB. Having these types of storage devices in hand will improve work efficiency and productivity.
Improved Storage Capacity and Performance
There are SATA 6Gbps hard drives that can give users a blend of HDD and SSD functionality. A device that can give a synergistic effect on both storage units will surely offer a higher level of performance. Users will find drives with traditional storage capacity up to 22TB. Most of these drives also come along with NAND technology for enhanced performance.
The read-write speed is something that will give users optimum satisfaction. With the SATA 6Gbps interface, users can expect a read speed of up to 400MB/s. Not only that, but some drives also run at up to 10000 rpm. Even at that rate, they are generally quiet, and they generate less heat.
Drives that use the SATA 6Gbps interface have been built to learn users' most used applications effectively. This engineering allows them to load those applications faster. It also helps gaming consoles to load the games initially after users have launched the game. There is everything to get excited about when it comes to these drives.
The point of the SATA 6Gbps interface is to enhance the quality of traditional mechanical hard drives. They are available at different capacity choices and RPM choices.
Reliable Data Recovery
There are possibilities of data accidents such as accidental deletion, formatting, virus attack, unexpected power shutdown, and partition loss. If such losses occur, data recovery software can easily recover the data from SATA 6Gbps hard drives. Data can be easily recovered, undelete, and unformatted from these SATA hard drives
Dynamic CacheThe dynamic cache is one of these drives most impressive features despite not being so evident to users. It improves the performance of the SATA 6Gbps drives in real time with optimized cache allocation. This function allocates more cache towards the read and writes functions. That is why users will find that read and write speeds are usually almost equal.
