What is the storage capacity of a 2.5 inch drive?

Laptop drives are typically 2.5 inches in size and can range from 160 GB to more than 2 TB in capacity. Most systems will have between 500 GB and 1 TB of storage, which is more than enough for the standard laptop system.

What is enterprise capacity hard drive?

Enterprise drives are built to run in workstations, servers, and storage devices that are operational 24/7.

Why are enterprise hard drives so expensive?

The SCSI storage protocol has more extensive commands for optimizing the manner in which data is transferred from drives to controllers and back. This uptick in efficiency would make an otherwise equal SAS drive inherently faster, especially under extreme work loads, than a SATA drive; it also increases the cost.

Are enterprise hard drives more reliable?

At first glance, it seems the enterprise drives don’t have that many failures. While true, the failure rate of enterprise drives is actually higher than that of the consumer drives! It turns out that the consumer drive failure rate does go up after three years, but all three of the first three years are pretty good.
