Though they have been around for a while, the 2.5” hard drive is not a typical component of the average computer but found more commonly in custom computers as the 2.5” hard drive has a lower angular velocity, lower capacity and lower cache when compared to 3.5” hard drives in the same price range. If you are looking to purchase a 2.5” hard drive for your computer, NCIX, your online computer store, carries the most popular brands such as Western Digital, Tobshiba, HP Commerical and Seagate Momentus among others.
As 2.5” hard drives have a lower cache when compared to 3.5” hard drives they generally have lower power consumption which is not a consideration in desktop computers but is an important factor for portable battery operated computers. The price and performance are also other considerations if you are thinking of purchasing a 2.5” hard drive at NCIX, as high performing 2.5” hard drives cost as much as high performing 3.5” hard drives, a high performing 2.5” hard drive in most cases would only be as good as that of a mid range 3.5” hard drive. It is important to note, however, since a 2.5” hard drive is meant for portable units, it is more resistant to vibrations than a 3.5” hard drive which is meant usually for desktop computers . A hard disk drive (HDD) is a data storage device used for storing and retrieving and NCIX has the best deals on hard drives for sale.
