Understanding the key features of this HDD can help users make informed decisions when choosing storage solutions for their computing needs.

Storage Capacity 500 Gigabytes (GB)

The primary purpose of any hard disk drive is to provide storage space for digital data. The ST3500641AS Barracuda boasts a storage capacity of 500 GB. This is a substantial amount of space, suitable for storing a wide range of data, including documents, images, videos, and applications. Users can benefit from this generous storage capacity for both personal and professional use.

Data Transfer Rate 300 Megabits Per Second (MBPS)

The data transfer rate of a hard disk drive is a critical factor in determining how quickly data can be read from or written to the drive.

The interface technology of a hard disk drive determines how it connects to a computer or other devices. The ST3500641AS Barracuda utilizes Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA)-II as its interface technology. SATA-II is a widely adopted and standardized interface for connecting storage devices to motherboards. It offers advantages such as faster data transfer rates, improved data integrity, and hot-swapping capabilities.

This sizable buffer enhances the drive's performance by storing frequently accessed data, reducing the time it takes to retrieve information and improving overall system responsiveness.

Physical Dimensions 3.5 Inch Form Factor

The physical dimensions of a hard disk drive are crucial, especially when considering compatibility with computer cases and drive bays. The ST3500641AS Barracuda adheres to the 3.5-inch form factor.
