Product Overview of IBM 00FN163

The 00FN163 IBM 5TB 7.2K RPM NL SATA-6GBPS 3.5Inch G2 Simple-Swap 512e Removable Hard Drive is a data storage device designed and manufactured by IBM. It is a high-capacity hard drive that offers reliable data storage for large amounts of data. In this article, we will discuss in detail the features and specifications of this hard drive.

Storage Capacity

The 00FN163 IBM hard drive has a storage capacity of 5TB, which is equivalent to 5,000 gigabytes. This means that it can store a large amount of data, including documents, photos, videos, and music. The high storage capacity makes it ideal for use in large businesses, data centers, and other organizations that deal with a significant amount of data.

Rotational Speed

The hard drive has a rotational speed of 7,200 revolutions per minute (RPM). This means that it can read and write data at a fast rate, making it suitable for applications that require fast access to data. The high rotational speed also ensures that data transfer rates are high, leading to efficient data processing.

SATA Interface

The hard drive uses the SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) interface, which is a common interface used in modern computers. The SATA interface allows for high-speed data transfer rates, making it possible to transfer large amounts of data quickly. The hard drive also supports SATA-6GBPS, which is the latest SATA version, offering even faster data transfer rates.

3.5 Inch Form Factor

The hard drive has a 3.5-inch form factor, which is the standard size for desktop computers. This means that it can be easily installed in most desktop computer systems without requiring any special adapters or brackets.

G2 Simple-Swap Design

The G2 Simple-Swap design of the hard drive makes it easy to install and remove the hard drive without requiring any tools. The hard drive can be easily inserted or removed from the drive bay, making it simple to replace or upgrade the hard drive.

512e Advanced Format

The hard drive uses the 512e advanced format, which is a technology that allows for higher storage capacity and improved data reliability. The 512e advanced format uses larger 4K sectors, which reduces the number of sectors required to store data, leading to higher storage capacity. The larger sector size also reduces the number of errors that can occur during data transfer, leading to improved data reliability.

Removable Design

The removable design of the hard drive allows for easy maintenance and upgrades. The hard drive can be easily removed from the system without requiring any special tools, making it simple to replace or upgrade the hard drive. This feature is particularly useful in systems that require frequent maintenance or upgrades.


The 00FN163 IBM hard drive is compatible with most modern computer systems that use the SATA interface. It is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems and can be used in a wide range of applications, including desktop computers, workstations, servers, and network-attached storage (NAS) systems.

Overall, the 00FN163 IBM 5TB 7.2K RPM NL SATA-6GBPS 3.5Inch G2 Simple-Swap 512e Removable Hard Drive is a high-capacity hard drive that offers reliable data storage for large amounts of data. Its high rotational speed, SATA interface, 3.5-inch form factor, G2 Simple-Swap design, 512e advanced format, and removable design make it a versatile and efficient storage solution. It is compatible with most modern computer systems and can be used in a wide range of applications.

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 of both storage units will surely offer a higher level of performance. Users will find drives with traditional storage capacity up to 18TB. 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 read speed 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 with 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 the 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 Cache

The 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.
