Seagate Momentus 7200.4 drives deliver the highest available laptop hard drive capacity while satisfying today’s need for desktop performance in a notebook computer. System builders can count on extending the life of their 7200-RPM laptops by eliminating the need to replace or upgrade due to performance obsolescence issues. All this without sacrificing battery life, because these new 7200-RPM drives draw only slightly more power than a 5400-RPM laptop drive.
When it comes to getting more time back in your day, nothing feels better than a well-performing laptop. Seagate's Momentus 7200-RPM drives can give precious moments back when you really need them. In fact, Seagate 7200-RPM drives can shut your system down 34 percent faster, and opening big files can be up to 30 seconds faster than a 5400-RPM drive can manage. When it’s your turn to shine, your 7200-RPM Seagate drive won’t keep you waiting.
When a laptop is dropped, the most catastrophic damage to the hard drive occurs when the head scrapes across the surface of the disk, causing potential data loss. G-Force Protection protects the hard drive against shock by sensing when the system is in a free-fall state, moving the heads off the platter and locking them in place. All this happens within three-tenths of a second when a change in acceleration equal to the force of gravity is sensed. G-Force Protection results in added durability and reliability during accidental drops.
The Momentus 7200.4 drive offers the capacities and feature sets that will ensure optimal performance for the following applications:
Demand for drives for laptop computers continues to grow exponentially. The laptop transition is driven by technology, as the performance gap between desktops and laptop PCs continues to close, making it possible to run the same applications on a laptop that users would previously have run on a desktop. Users no longer have to sacrifice performance for mobility.
All Seagate laptop drives are environmentally green, but it’s their technology that really makes them sprout. Momentus® 7200-RPM drives are designed with the environment in mind. Seagate drives contain a large percentage of recyclable material, typically over 70 percent. Their drives are all RoHS compliant and also comply with several nonregulatory restrictions. In fact, Seagate restricts over 200 substances in their products.
Standard Warranty: 3-Years
Laptop Drives are the smaller form factor (2.5”) drives, typically found in laptops, Low-Profile PCs and some Consumer Electronic equipment.
SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) hard drives are quickly becoming the new standard in hard drive technology. Motherboard manufacturers now include SATA inputs on their boards. SATA hard drives result in less clutter and increased airflow in the computer system because SATA cables are 400 percent narrower than EIDE cables.
Some older computer system motherboards don't have SATA ports but a PCI SATA controller card can be installed to add support for SATA drives. If you don't know whether your computer has SATA ports on the motherboard, refer to your computer or motherboard documentation or contact the motherboard manufacturer.
