More Details

The Samsung HD204UI is a hard disk drive (HDD) produced by Samsung. The model number "HD204UI" is used to identify this specific drive.

The drive has a storage capacity of 2TB, which means it can store 2 terabytes of data. This is a large amount of storage, and it is suitable for storing large amounts of data such as documents, media files, and backups.

The drive has a rotation speed of 5,400 RPM, which means the disks inside the drive spin at 5,400 revolutions per minute. This rotation speed is slower than 15K and 10K RPM hard drives but still provides a good balance between performance and capacity.

The drive uses the SATA-II 3GB/s interface, which is an older version of the SATA interface. This interface provides a data transfer rate of up to 3 gigabytes per second, which is slower than the latest version of the SATA interface (SATA III 6GB/s)

The drive also has a buffer size of 32MB which is used as a temporary storage area for data that is waiting to be written to the drive or read from it. This buffer size will help to improve the drive's performance in high-load environments.

High-speed data transfer

The Samsung HD204UI is a hard disk drive (HDD) with a storage capacity of 2TB and uses the SATA-II 3GB/s interface. The SATA-II 3GB/s interface provides a data transfer rate of up to 3 gigabytes per second. While this is considered a high data transfer rate for its time, it is slower than the latest version of the SATA interface (SATA III 6GB/s) which provides a data transfer rate of up to 6 gigabytes per second.

It's worth noting that the overall performance of the hard drive can be affected by various factors such as the type of data being stored, the number of simultaneous read/write operations, and the specific use case. Therefore, it is recommended to check the system's specifications before installing the drive to ensure compatibility and to get the best performance out of it.

General Compatibility

The Samsung HD204UI is a hard drive that uses the SATA-II 3GB/s interface, which is compatible with most devices that support the SATA standard, such as servers, workstations, and desktop computers. The drive is also compatible with the older version of the SATA interface, SATA-II 3GB/s.

The drive is designed for use in consumer-grade environments and it is 3.5 inches in size and it's compatible with most devices that support the 3.5 inches hard drive form factor.

It is important to note that the drive's storage capacity of 2TB and its 5,400 RPM rotation speed make it best suited for use in consumer-grade environments. Therefore, it is recommended to check the system's specifications before installing the drive to ensure compatibility and to get the best performance out of it. For example, the host device should have a compatible SATA-II controller card and the power supply should be able to provide enough power for the drive.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

Serial advanced technology attachment denoted as SATA or Serial ATA, or S-ATA is a computer bus interface mostly connecting host bus adapters to mass storage devices including hard drives. It is the most commonly used technology to connect hard drives to a PC's motherboard.

There have been multiple versions of the SATA interface developed to meet the need for increased storage capacity and bandwidth. The SATA technology was first introduced in 2000 to replace ATA and PATA to provide faster data transfer rates and hot-swapping. Advanced host controller interface (AHCI) is the standard interface for SATA which supports hot swapping and native command queuing (NCQ). Hot swapping refers to the ability to replace components of a computer system without having to shut down the entire system. NCQ allows improved performance through the ability to augment the orders of implementation of reading/writing commands. That means commands will be rescheduled and permits the host to send more commands to the hard drive as it searches data for another command. The 6Gbps data transfer throughout makes it superior to previous technologies such as ATA and PATA. SATA is able to run in IDE emulation mode, but it will not support advanced features.

We have helped all our clients across the board to understand how the technology works with HDDs, SSDs, and modules by knowing the specifications of the different SATA versions. A good grasp of these versions of SATA helps in the identification of the right storage capacity options for your application.

SATA II HDD generation or SATA 2.0 of the SATA technology is part of a series of revisions that happened in 2003, 2004, and 2008 that culminated in SATA III or SATA 3.0. With every revision, there was an increase in speed and additional features that support speed and allow for reliable storage drives. However, the physical appearance of the SATA connector was not altered. SATA III is the most commonly used SATA interface and has been through five revisions from 3.1 to 3.5.

SATA II hard disk was previously referred to as SATA 3Gbps which reflected its speeds. This second generation of the SATA technology has a SATA interface with 3Gbps transfer speed and a bandwidth throughput of 300MB/s. The following are SATA II drives you can choose from depending on specific need: 1.5TB-5.4K RPM, 1.5TB-5.9K RPM, 1.5TB-7200 RPM, 160GB-5.4K RPM, 160GB-7.2K RPM, 1TB-5.9K RPM, 1TB-7.2K RPM, 200GB-7.2K RPM, 250GB-5.4K RPM, 250GB-5.9K RPM, 250GB-7.2K RPM, 2TB-5.4K RPM, 2TB-5.9K RPM, 2TB-7200 RPM, 300GB-10K RPM, 300GB-7.2K RPM, 320GB-5.4K RPM, 320GB-7.2K RPM, 3TB-7.2K RPM, 400GB-7.2K RPM and 360GB-7200 RPM.

Notable features of SATA II include:

  • Hot plugging – refers to the ability to change a drive as the computer runs.
  • Staggered Spin Up – refers to the ability to start disk drives in sequence to ensure even power load at the starting of the system.
  • Native command queuing – SATA 2.0 drives have an in-built algorithm that chooses the most efficient order to execute commands to improve performance and efficiency. The feature helps to reduce mechanical overhead and improve performance.
  • Port multipliers – these help to connect as many as 15 drives to a SATA controller. This feature facilitates the easier building of disk enclosures using SATA drives.
  • Port selectors – the feature allows the connection of two hosts to one drive. It helps create redundancy to the drive connection which is very critical in enterprise environments. That means if one of the hosts experiences failure, the second host will take over thereby ensuring continued access to storage.

All SATA generations are compatible both forward and backward. It, therefore, means that SATA II hard disk is backward compatible to function with SATA I ports. Likewise, SATA III is compatible backward to function with SATA I and SATA II ports. In backward compatibility, the maximum speed of the drive will slow down in line with the speed limitations of the port it is connected to. The same is true for lower SATA generations being compatible with higher SATA generations but are limited to their inbuilt speeds.

For users seeking greater speeds than the SATA III limits at 1.5Gbps, 3Gbps, and 6Gbps, there are M.2 and NVMe drives that offer greater performance. These drives have no limitations and will perform more efficiently and are chosen by users focused on speed and performance above everything else.

We have different motherboards with SATA connections and more particularly with SATA II connections and will come with a few SATA cables for the connections that you will use to build a new rig or do upgrades on a rig. Choose from the wide range of SATA cables dependent on what you need and especially when upgrading an older hard drive or other components on your computer. To ensure that you achieve enhanced speeds and performance, you need to buy SATA cables and adapters for compatibility. It may help to depend on profile and budget to get the latest SATA III standard.

You can fully trust our team to walk you through the options available with SATA II technology and help you choose the best storage for your applications.
