Perfect for laptops and small form factor PCs, the Momentus drives deliver the technology, durability, small size and mobility features needed by today's enthusiasts.
The combination of proven Seagate perpendicular recording technology, Native Command Queuing (NCQ), Seagate laptop power management and the speed of a SATA 3Gbps interface delivers the optimum mix of performance and energy efficiency. Perpendicular recording technology - increases performance and reliability by aligning the data bits vertically on the disk.
NCQ dramatically increases performance by organizing incoming commands in the most efficient order. For the optimum in mobility, the Momentus 5400 leverages Seagate's laptop power management technology and ramp load features which remove the head from the disk during idle periods; idle power consumption is improved and the durability of the drive improves as well. Plus, to keep noise levels to a minimum, QuietStep ramp load technology delivers ultra-quiet load/unload acoustics.
