Hard disk drives

A magnetic oxide-coated platter (disk) or stack of platters inside a sealed case. Data can be stored on both sides of the platter, with a read/write head for each recording surface. There are only two moving parts: the head and the disk, the latter spinning at speeds from 4200 to 10,000 rpm, depending on the model, with 5400 to 7200 rpm models common. While they can be written to and read millions of times, drive failure does occur eventually.
