320GB hard disk by Seagate!

A formatted Seagate ST3320620AS can store up to 298GB of data. The drive sports a 16 MB buffer. It has a SATA interface with theoretical transfer speeds of up to 3 GBps. It spins at 7200 RPM and has an average latency of 4.16 milliseconds. Random seek times are rated at < 8.5 ms (Read) and <10.0 ms (Write), respectively. All these figures are suggestive of the fact that the HDD performs commendably well.
Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of the HDD is 700,000 hours. (MTBF is a figure that hints at the reliability of an HDD. So, higher the figure, the more reliable the HDD.)
