Like the time needed to read and write items of data which differs significantly based on their physical locations on the recording medium due to mechanical constraints, a random-access memory device allows data items to be read or written in almost the same amount of time regardless of the physical location of data inside the memory, hard discs, DVD-RWs, CD-RWs, the older drum memory and magnetic tapes.
