Seagate Momentus 500GB Laptop Hard Drive, Model ST905003N3A1ASRK
Data protection for dropped laptops
Optional Seagate G-Force Protection technology helps protect the data stored on your Momentus hard drive if you drop your laptop.
When G-Force Protection technology detects that your hard drive has been dropped, it instantly swings the drive heads to a safe zone away from the storage disk. This can keep your critical data safe and recoverable at impact, even if your laptop does not survive.
SmartAlign technology for easy 4K migration
A change is coming to the hard drive industry. The smallest sector of organized data on a drive is moving from 512 to 4,096 bytes. The new format, known as Advanced Format (AF) 4K, offers advantages like increased efficiency, but migrating your drive can be challenging.
Luckily, Seagate is ready to help you make a seamless transition to 4K sectors.
Select Momentus laptop hard drives feature Seagate SmartAlign technology, which automatically does the work of AF migration in the background. The drive’s performance is not affected, and there is no need for time-consuming utilities required by other AF-enabled drives.
Optimal security with Self-Encrypting Drives
Momentus laptop hard drives are available as a Self-Encrypting Drive (SED)* that protects your data the instant you save it to your drive. For government-grade security, Momentus internal hard drives can also be purchased as a FIPS 140-2 Validated SED.**
Lost laptop? Rest easy knowing that your data is protected and 100% encrypted–always.
Select Momentus laptop hard drives features include:
- Instant on-the-fly encryption without performance degradation
- SecureErase™ technology can instantly erase the secure key data on your hard drive, enabling safe and easy disposal or repurposing of the drive
*SED models not available in all countries.
**Not available in all countries. See FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Certificate. TM: The FIPS logo is a certification mark of NIST, which does not imply endorsement by NIST, the U.S., or Canadian governments.
