HGST — how to decipher the components of the model name?

Want to pick up a HDD for your Synology NAS. There is a perception that HGST are more reliable than others.
First: can't find the official website of the manufacturer of the discs. Where is he hiding?
Secondly: it is not clear how to understand the letters in the model name.
Who than helps? Google did not help, some excavators, compressors, instrument...

Oddly enough - at hgst.com.
The first link in Yandex on request "HGST" gives the answer to this question.

Secondly: it is not clear how to understand the letters in the model name.
Hitachi Global Storage Technologies
The second link in Yandex on request "HGST" gives the answer to this question.
Thanks for the link. Somehow climbed on Hitachi. And under the name of the model I was referring to the transcript, such as this: HGST HUS726060ALA640 - Yasmeen23 commented on July 9th 19 at 10:16
: Then it is on the Western digital it would be logical to climb.
The HGST drives manufactured by Western Digital Corporation, which bought production at Hitachi. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 9th 19 at 10:19
: Climbed. But there are none. - Yasmeen23 commented on July 9th 19 at 10:22
HUS726060ALA640 is the model code, he is not obliged to decrypt, Il carry some meaning. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 9th 19 at 10:25
: Logical, because the WDC carried information on products under the trademark of HGST on a separate site. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 9th 19 at 10:28
: Required. Not forehead on the keyboard of the same name wrote. Here is the info, but not complete: www.tehnari.ru/members/b509.html - Yasmeen23 commented on July 9th 19 at 10:31
: Not required.
Code makes sense for someone who writes.
But for the casual person it is not obliged to carry meaning.
Given your information was correct for that time and those models, it is constantly changing. - earl.Weissnat commented on July 9th 19 at 10:34
I was just wondering what is the difference between:
HUH728060ALE600
HUH728060ALN600

HUH728060ALE601
HUH728060ALN601

HUH728060ALE604
HUH728060ALN604
What is "E", "N", "0", "1", "4" ? - Yasmeen23 commented on July 9th 19 at 10:37
All. The question is settled. In some datasheets found. - Yasmeen23 commented on July 9th 19 at 10:40
Example: HUH7280xxAL420y = 7200 RPM, xTB, 4Kn SAS 12Gb/s
H = HGST
U = Ultrastar
H = Helium (vs. S for Standard)
72 = 7200 RPM
80 = Full capacity — 8TB (8000GB)
xx = Capacity this model (80 = 8TB, 60 = 6TB)
A = Generation code
L = 26.1 mm z-height
42 = Interface, 4Kn SAS 12Gb/s (52 = 512e SAS 12Gb/s, E6 = 512e SATA 6Gb/s, N6 = 4Kn SATA 6Gb/s)
0 = Reserved
y = Data Security Mode
0 = Instant Secure Erase
1 = Bulk Data Encryption (SATA), TCG SED encryption (SAS)
4 = Secure Erase (overwrite only)
5 = TCG encryption with FIPS (SAS) - Yasmeen23 commented on July 9th 19 at 10:43
