Når du kjøper for en ny harddisk for datamaskinen eller datamaskinen, kan du kjøre på tvers av vilkårene Bare og / eller OEM, men er de egentlig det forskjellig fra andre harddisker eller er de det samme? Dagens SuperUser Q & A innlegg har svar på en forvirret leser spørsmål.

SuperUser leser Pankhuri Gupta vil vite mer om 'Bare' og 'OEM' harddisker:
I am looking for a new internal hard-drive for my laptop and found terms like ‘Bare’ hard-drive and ‘OEM’ hard-drive when looking online.
I researched the terms and found that ‘bare’ hard-drives do not come with cables or manuals. But I am still confused about one thing. Do they have the connector chip on them? Everywhere I looked online I saw images of ‘bare’ hard-drives displayed with exposed spindles and platters.
I do not believe that I will need any cables or other ‘accessory’ parts to replace the old hard-drive in my laptop.
Hva får du faktisk med en 'Bare' eller 'OEM' harddisk?
SuperUser bidragsytere Journeyman Geek og Fiasco Labs har svaret for oss. Først opp, Journeyman Geek:
There is little practical difference between a retail or ‘OEM’ hard-drive for consumer systems. For the same model, it is the same exact hard-drive with all the relevant internal parts needed to make it function. In general, such hard-drives are primarily marketed at system builders who would rather get a padded box of hard-drives with just the necessary packaging.
In general, OEM packaging looks like this:
You have a hard-drive in a sealed bag and that is it. No SATA cables, manuals, or anything else is included.
Hard-drives absolutely do not ship with exposed platters.
Depending on the type of hard-drive and the SKU, you may get some additional literature (like manuals), a SATA cable, or in the case of some SSDs, a ‘migration kit’ that would let you hook up your hard-drive over USB, image it, and then swap hard-drives.
I would also add that if it is a pre-built computer (or server in some cases), replacing the ‘OEM’ hard-drive that came standard in it with your own hard-drive (‘OEM’ or otherwise) may void the warranty. Some may also have specific firmware versions or be branded to the system builder.

‘Bare’ means a hard-drive in a manufacturer’s sealed anti-static bag (for all the vendors I have ever bought a hard-drive from). As long as it is properly packaged against g-forces, you are good to go.
