PERFORMANCE

This is where the F4EG really shines and truly shows itself as a a next-generation device. With denser platters, and an advanced formatting system, this drive jumps leaps and bounds ahead of the competition. The power requirements for, not only idle but load as well, are very minimal. The drive is very quiet, and runs much cooler than 7200 rpm counterparts.

HOW MUCH IS 18 EXABYTES EXACTLY?

To put this amount into perspective, take into account that 1 exabyte= 1 Billion Gigabytes = 1 Million Terabytes. So, the maximum partition size of a GPT drive is 18 Million Terabytes, which is considerably bigger than the paltry 2 TB allowed by the MBR disk partitioning system! There are other notable benefits to using GPT as it provides greater reliability due to replication and cyclical redundancy checks on the partition table itself.
