  • Product image may represent a design model.
  • Definition of capacity: Toshiba defines a megabyte (MB) as 1 000 000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1 000 000 000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1 000 000 000 000 bytes.  A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1 073 741 824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity.  Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content.  Actual formatted capacity may vary.
  • A kibibyte (KiB) means 210, or 1 024 bytes, a mebibyte (MiB) means 220, or 1 048 576 bytes, and a gibibyte (GiB) means 230, or 1 073 741 824 bytes.
  • Read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.
  • "2.5-inch" and "3.5-inch" mean the form factor of HDDs or SSDs. They do not indicate drive's physical size.
  • Power consumption : DT02 Series are ative idle mode, and others are low rpm idle mode.
