Toshiba MG07ACA14TE 14TB SATA Enterprise HDD Review JReynolds .

Welcome to Myce’s review of the Toshiba MG07ACA14TE 14TB SATA Enterprise HDD.
The MOG07ACA is a helium filled, high capacity HDD.
Helium gas is hermetically sealed within the drive, and is one seventh the density of air, thus the drag on the drive’s platters is reduced significantly, which in turn reduces power consumption and heat generation. Although this technology is not new, with the MG07ACA, Toshiba includes 9 platters in an HDD for the first time.
Please read on to see what we make of it.

Introduction

Welcome to Myce’s review of the Toshiba MG07ACA14TE 14TB SATA Enterprise HDD (hereafter referred to as the Toshiba MG07ACA).

The MOG07ACA is a helium filled, high capacity HDD.

Helium gas is hermetically sealed within the drive, and is one seventh the density of air, thus the drag on the drive’s platters is reduced significantly, which in turn reduces power consumption and heat generation.  Although this technology is not new, with the MG07ACA, Toshiba includes 9 platters in an HDD for the first time.

The Toshiba MG07ACA features a 256MB Cache and spins at 7,200 rpm.
