Definitions for "Transfer Rate"
Keywords:  megabytes, burst, megabits, sec, bytes
The rate at which data is transferred in some amount of bits per second.
The fastest rate at which data can be transferred from a drive, usually measured in megabytes per second (MB/s).
The rate at which the disk drive sends and receives data from the controller. The sustained transfer rate includes the time required for system processing, head switches, and seeks, and accurately reflects the drive's true performance. The burst mode transfer rate is a much higher figure that refers only to the movement of data directly into RAM.
