What is the average weight of a SATA hard drive for desktops of 3.5" form factor. I think they make up for most of the weight inside the cabinet. Is it usually over 2.2 pounds (1 Kg)??

    depends totally on the number of bits you have turned from 0 to 1 :) – akira May 31 '10 at 10:41

This Samsung drive is pretty common these days. Can't imagine they vary enormously...

625g, according to the mfr web site.


Over 1 kg? Probably not much more than 0.5 kg.
