7 common question about the HP Q2R42A

What is the Option Part number for the HP Q2R42A hard drive?
The Option Part number is Q2R42A.
What is the Spare Part number for the HP Q2R42A hard drive?
The Spare Part number is P00442-001.
What does it mean that the HP Q2R42A is MDL drive?
MDL translates to Midline. It’s a high-capacity storage drive that’s considered a great choice for reliable external storage requirements, it provides higher I/O performance utilizing low power. The MDL storage drives like HP Q2R42A generally pack high data transmission capacity for robust server performance. HP’s Midline drives are ideal for storing backups and multi-drive configurations as well as demanding workloads like video editing and high-speed data transfers.
What does it mean that the HP Q2R42A is 3.5" LFF?
LFF refers to a large form factor. The LFF drives like HP Q2R42A pack a 3.5-inch size which rounds off to an approximate 4-inch width, 5.8-inch length, and 0.8-inch thickness. Note that 3.5 inches are the size of a hard drive’s data platter, not its overall physical size. The 3.5-inch hard drives are commonly used in desktop computers and servers. Their larger form factor makes them unsuitable for hard drive bays of small form factor (2.5-inches).
What does it mean that the HP Q2R42A is a SAS 12G drive?
SAS stands for Serial-Attached SCSI. It’s a type of storage drive interface with a versatile array of connectors, making it more effective at reading and writing data. Like HP’s Q2R42A, SAS storage drives are particularly useful for continuous computer operations, like servers and workstations. That said, a 12G SAS drive means it has a bandwidth of 12Gbs (gigabits/second) and allows for faster data transfer rates than most traditional storage drives.
What does it mean that the HP Q2R42A is a Helium drive?
Helium storage drives are filled with Helium gas to minimize air turbulence (certain wind patterns) when their platters spin. These Helium drives, like HP's Q2R42A, operate at cooler temperatures and keep out humidity, so the drive lasts long. Due to all these features, the Helium-filled drives benefit users with a significantly increased data storage size, better reliability, and lower energy consumption. However, Helium must remain sealed inside the hard drive to be fully functional, or humidity may damage the drive.
What does it mean that the HP Q2R42A is a 512e drive?
512e in a hard drive refers to 512 bytes emulated storage of a physical sector. Emulated storage means what size is shown to an operating system or software if needed but is not a reality. The reality of 512e storage drives is that each sector packs 4096-byte storage, following an advanced standard. However, the purpose of the 512 bytes emulated storage is to ensure the drive works well with operating systems that only support traditional hard drives. The format of these 512e drives, like HP's Q2R42A, is called Advanced Format (AF).
