More Information

WD Purple 8TB

The WD Purple 8TB hard drive ranks among the high load internal HDDs for 24/7 monitoring systems, e.g. security cameras. 3.5" HDDs are designed chiefly for desktop computers and data centres. One of the crucial parameters is undoubtedly the number of revolutions per minute (RPM). 7200 RPM delivers better speeds when working with multimedia and data. You can look forward to a total data capacity of 8000 GB. The storage uses a 256 MB memory cache. You can connect it to a PC or other devices through the SATA III interface.

  • Read speed up to 65 MB/s and write speed up to 65 MB/s
  • 256 MB memory cache for a speed boost
  • The 3.5" format is designed for data centres and desktop PCs
  • Maximum power consumption 9 W
  • Standard power consumption is 8 W, while in stand-by mode it makes 0,8 W
  • All the data communication takes place via the SATA III interface
  • Platter-based hard drives are more susceptible to physical damage, but they also deliver a better storage capacity for less money than SSDs
  • The WD Purple 8TB weights 710 g

WD Purple 8TB HDD Speed

Standard HDDs are notable for their construction. Inside the hard drive there is a mechanism with moving platters accompanied by hard disk heads that read and write the data. These moving parts can be damaged by a shock or impact, but this weak point is well-compensated by an affordable price tag and high storage capacity. The crucial criterion that affects the speed of a hard disk is RPM - the number of revolutions per minute. With the WD Purple 8TB, you would get 7200 RPM revolutions per minute. This is welcome news for people with higher requirements, such as graphic designers, gamers, video editors, and people who tend to use large amounts of data. Data transmission and overall stability is also impacted by the disk buffer, usually called cache. The Western Digital hard drive is equipped with a 256 MB cache that stores the last data inputs for their fast retrieval and reading.

Connecting the Hard Disk to Your PC

In order to mount the WD Purple 8TB in the device of your choice, it requires a 3,5" slot. The communication between the HDD and PC happens via the SATA III interface with a standard speed of 6 Gbit/s. The technology ranks among the most popular HDD data transfer options available and delivers a speed of 600 MB/s. The dimensions of the hard disk are 101,6 × 26,1 × 147 mm.
