Table in "Current HDD Models that Employ a 4k Sectors"
In this section there is no hint about which way/tool is used to find out the Reported sector size. My hard disk information was obtained by:
# hdparm -I /dev/wd-hard_disk
I read somewhere that one can also look at /sys/block/wd-hard_disk/queue/hw_sector_size, which reports only 512.
Also, I don't undestand the order of disks in the table (not sorted by Manufacturer, not by Capacity) so I simply added mine on top. 6arms1leg 17:05, 26 March 2012 (EDT)
# parted /dev/wd-hard_disk print
- also gives me:
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
