Re: HD Question - What is .10 in 7200.10rpm
Is it a Seagate hard drive? I notice Seagate has a lot of those 7200.6, .7, .8, .9, etc. The .10 suffix indicates this is the tenth generation drive resulting from ten years of research. The 7200.10 is the first ever to use 500GB and 750GB drives and as you have mentioned, use Perpendicular Technology. Here's what you are dealing with when it comes to the 7200.10 drives:
Highest capacity in a single drive - up to 750 GB of digital storage space.
The first 3.5" drive to support Vertically stored data bits, enabling industry leading capacity in existing standard form factors (perpendicular recording).
