Features

The HD501LJ utilizes Serial ATA which uses 4 signal-lines that allows much more compact cables compared to PATA. Besides that, it is built with SATA Native Command Queuing (NCQ) feature set that re-ordering the commands sent by the computer to the HDD which increase its performance. In addition, it also installed with initiated power management which it will automatically switches on power saving mode and cuts down on electricity through the SATA cable which can effectively reduce power consumption. The high speed dual DSP (Digital Signal Processor) based architecture also helps to enhance the performance and speed. Also, it features staggered spin-up that is reliable and avoids power surges if all of the HDDs spin up simultaneously during system power up (in a multi-drive environment). It is also ATA SMART compliant which it checks the reliability itself. Additionally, it also features ATA automatic acoustic management, ATA 48-bit address, ATA streaming and ATA device configuration overlay. SilentSeek feature minimizes the mechanical excitation generated by any resonance, virtually eliminating the source of seek acoustic noise. Meanwhile, ImpacGuard eliminates vibration of an HDD disc when not assisted by the helping head media, which is parked in the landing zone.
