    Generally refers to the time taken by the head of a disc drive to access the sector where the information it has been sent to find, resides. An important specification for audio work since audio streaming is a time intensive process. Track count and edit density will dictate how much stress will be put on the drive, and therefore how low the seek time needs to be.
