[1] Definition of capacity: A terabyte (TB) is 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1TB = 240  = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes and therefore shows less storage  capacity.    Available  storage  capacity  (including  examples of  various  media  files)  will  vary  based  on  file  size, formatting, settings, software and operating system and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content.    Actual formatted capacity may vary.

[2] Form Factor: “2.5-inch” means the form factor of Hard Drives. They do not indicate drive’s physical size.

[3] 25% energy consumption comparison is based on 2TB models of P300 and V300.

[4] Read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size. [5] This specification is for the S300 10TB model.

[6] Workload is a measure of the data throughput of the year, and it is defined as the amount of data written, read or verified by commands from the host system.
