Introduction to the Seagate ST3160812AS SATA-II Hard Drive

The ST3160812AS is a hard disk drive (HDD) made by Seagate. It belongs to the Barracuda family and has a storage capacity of 160 gigabytes (GB). In this article, we will discuss the features of this HDD, including its rotational speed, interface, buffer size, and form factor.

Capacity & Rotational Speed

The ST3160812AS has a storage capacity of 160 GB, which means it can store up to 160 billion bytes of data. This is considered a small capacity by today's standards, as modern HDDs and solid-state drives (SSDs) can have capacities of several terabytes (TB).

The Barracuda ST3160812AS has a rotational speed of 7200 revolutions per minute (RPM). This means that the disk rotates 7200 times every minute, which helps to improve the drive's read and write speeds. Higher rotational speeds generally mean faster data access times, but they can also lead to increased noise and heat generation.

Interface & Buffer Size

The ST3160812AS uses the Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) interface. SATA is a widely used interface for connecting storage devices, including HDDs and SSDs, to a computer's motherboard. SATA-II is the second generation of the SATA interface, which has a maximum data transfer rate of 3 gigabits per second (Gbps).

The ST3160812AS has a buffer size of 8 megabytes (MB). The buffer, also known as cache, is a small amount of high-speed memory that the HDD uses to temporarily store frequently accessed data. This helps to improve the drive's performance by reducing the time it takes to access data.

Low Profile Form Factor

The Barracuda ST3160812AS has a low profile form factor, which means it has a smaller height than a standard 3.5-inch HDD. This makes it ideal for use in compact desktop computers, small form factor (SFF) PCs, and other devices where space is at a premium.

Made by Seagate

Seagate is a leading manufacturer of HDDs and other storage devices. The company was founded in 1979 and has since grown to become one of the largest storage solutions providers in the world. Seagate's Barracuda family of HDDs is known for its high performance, reliability, and affordability.

Finally, the ST3160812AS Barracuda is a 160GB HDD that offers fast read and write speeds, thanks to its 7200 RPM rotational speed and SATA-II interface. Its 8MB buffer size helps to improve performance, and its low profile form factor makes it suitable for use in space-constrained environments. Seagate, the manufacturer of this HDD, is a well-respected name in the storage industry and has a proven track record of producing reliable and high-performance drives. While the ST3160812AS may not have the same capacity as newer HDDs and SSDs, it still provides a cost-effective solution for users who require moderate storage capacity and decent performance.
