Here you will find a comprehensive selection of internal and external hard disks from all well-known manufacturers at the latest prices. Adapt your computer to current requirements or make your data mobile. The hard disk sizes are 6.35 cm (2.5'') and 8.89 cm (3.5''). Internal hard drives are installed in a computer case and provide a fast and efficient way to store and access data. External hard drives, on the other hand, are portable devices that connect to a computer via a USB or Thunderbolt interface and offer an easy way to back up and transfer data. With a variety of options in terms of storage capacity and speed, there is a solution for every need and budget.

Interesting facts from the field of hard disks

SSD - Solid State Drive

The abbreviation SSD means Solid State Drive. This indicates that the memory does not rotate and is therefore a flash memory that, unlike the HDD, does not need a mechanical arm and rotating magnetic disks. Instead, a controller performs the read and write function.

Since there are no mechanical components, there is also no noise pollution. SSDs have fast read and write speeds. With SSDs, you can make your computer even more powerful. By using flash technology, solid-state drives outperform conventional mechanical hard drives in terms of speed, durability and reliability.

Advantages SSD:

  • No moving parts, therefore robust against shocks
  • No operating noise
  • Fast boot times
  • Low error rate

Disadvantages SSD:

  • No high storage capacities at the moment
  • More expensive than HDD

HDD - Hard Disk Drives

The hard disk drive, often referred to as a hard disk drive (HDD), is a magnetic storage device on which data is written to and also read from rotating disks.

The data is transferred to the magnetic discs by moving read/write arms. The rotating discs also cause a not inconsiderable amount of noise. HDDs are available in 2.5 and 3.5 inch versions, both externally and internally in the computer or notebook.

Advantages of HDDs:

  • Inexpensive
  • High capacities possible

Disadvantages HDD:

  • Slow boot time
  • Operating noise
  • Mechanically susceptible
