The 2H3131-136 Seagate Exos X14 12TB 7.2K RPM SATA-6GBPS Enterprise Hard Disk Drive is a high-performance, high-capacity storage solution for enterprise-grade systems and applications.
The Storage has a storage capacity of 12 terabytes and a rotation speed of 7200 RPM. This provides faster data access times than slower-spinning drives, which can help improve the overall performance of the storage system.
The drive uses the SATA-6GBPS interface, which is a 6 Gbps SATA interface that supports the latest generation of SATA-based storage solutions. This interface provides faster data transfer speeds than SATA-3GBPS interfaces, allowing for faster data access and better performance when working with large data sets or when multiple users are accessing the data simultaneously.
Seagate's Exos line is enterprise hard disk drives, which are designed to provide high-performance, high-reliability storage for data center and other demanding enterprise environments. The Exos X14 series of drives are optimized for high-density storage and high-performance data processing.
The drive has a large cache buffer of 256MB which helps to improve the overall performance of the drive by allowing for faster data access.
This is a high-performance, high-capacity storage solution for enterprise-grade systems and applications that require large amounts of storage and fast data access. It's suitable for workloads that require high-speed data transfer and high-performance storage.
The Seagate Exos X14 12TB 7.2K RPM SATA-6GBPS 256MB Buffer 3.5-inch Enterprise Hard Disk Drive is designed for use in high-performance data center and enterprise environments.
The 7200 RPM spindle speed and 6 Gbps data transfer rate of the SATA interface provide fast data access and transfer speeds. The 256MB buffer is designed to help improve performance by allowing the drive to quickly access frequently-used data.
it's important to note that the performance of the drive will also depend on the workload it is subjected to, the RAID level and controller it is used with, and the system it is installed in.
It's also worth noting that this drive has a large storage capacity of 12TB which makes it suitable for large data storage, archiving, backup and nearline storage.
It is also important to note that while the drive is designed for enterprise and data center environments, it may not perform as well as drives with a SAS interface in high-performance workloads.
The Seagate Exos X14 12TB 7.2K RPM SATA-6GBPS 256MB Buffer 3.5-inch enterprise hard disk drive is designed to be compatible with a wide range of enterprise storage systems.
The HDD uses the SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) interface, which is a widely-used data transfer standard that is supported by most enterprise storage systems. The drive also supports a data transfer rate of 6 Gbps, which is a standard data transfer rate for SATA drives.
The drive has a buffer size of 256MB, which is a moderate buffer size that provides a balance of performance and cost. The drive also uses the 512e sector format, which is the industry standard for larger capacity drives, this format increases the compatibility and allows the drive to work with systems that are not capable of handling the new Advanced Format 4K sector standard.
The HDD is a 3.5-inch form factor (LFF) drive, which is the standard size for enterprise-level storage systems. This form factor allows the drive to fit in a wide range of storage systems and enclacements.
It is also designed for 24x7x365 operation, and it is built to withstand high workloads and provide a high level of reliability. Additionally, it features advanced error correction, and it is designed to recover from errors without compromising data integrity.
In summary, the Seagate Exos X14 12TB 7.2K RPM SATA-6GBPS 256MB Buffer 3.5-inch enterprise hard disk drive is a high-capacity and standard size storage solution that is well-suited for use in enterprise storage systems. The drive uses the standard SATA interface, 512e sector format, and the 3.5-inch form factor which increases its compatibility with most enterprise storage systems.

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.
