Seagate Desktop HDD 5TB

Looking at the drive itself, we again find the drive without a capacity designation, though the model number hides no secrets.

The drives SATA power and data connectors are lined up correctly so no issues with hot swap racks.

Above, we have the PCB removed from the drive where we get a look at the LSI controller in the center, followed by 128MB of SKHynix DRAM for the cache and Smooth motor driver.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town in northern Ohio, technology was never around unless it was in a tractor. At the early age of nine years old, my parents brought home our very first PC and I was instantly hooked and quickly learned what it meant to format a hard drive, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95 as my parents slept. As I grew up, many things changed around me, but my love and enthusiast nature always kept my PC at my side. Eager to get deeper into technology, I started reviewing products.
