Data Transfer Speed (SI) Unit Converter
Data transfer speed using non-binary units is typically measured in decimal units, such as kilobytes per second (KB/s), megabytes per second (MB/s), and gigabytes per second (GB/s). Here are a couple of real-life examples of data transfer speeds using non-binary units:
Hard drive transfer speed: The transfer speed of a hard drive is often measured in MB/s or GB/s. For example, a solid-state drive (SSD) can have a transfer speed of up to 550 MB/s, which means that you can transfer up to 550 megabytes of data per second between the hard drive and your computer.
Blu-ray disc transfer speed: The transfer speed of a Blu-ray disc is typically measured in MB/s. For instance, a 4x speed Blu-ray disc can transfer up to 18 MB/s, which means that you can transfer up to 18 megabytes of data per second from the disc to your computer.
Download speed of applications: When you download an application from the internet, the download speed is often measured in MB/s or KB/s. For example, if you are downloading a large file from the internet and your download speed is 5 MB/s, this means that you can download up to 5 megabytes of data every second.
