Byte unit conversion

The tool implements byte unit scaling, including both standard and binary values.

 Enter value: bits bytes KB MB GB kilobit megabit gigabit

International standard unit value
 byte [KB] [MB] [GB]

 bits Kilobit Megabit Gigabit

Binary value

byte bits
Kibibyte[KiB] Kibibit
Mebibyte[MiB] Mebibit
Gibibyte[GiB] Gibibit

Note: the difference between MiB and MB, KiB and KB::
1KB(kilobyte)=1000byte,    1KiB(kibibyte)=1024byte
1MB(megabyte)=1000000byte, 1MiB(mebibyte)=1048576byte

Hard diskThe manufacturer computes in GB (decimal, 10 to the third power = 1000, for example, 1MB = 1000KB) and the computer (operating system) computes in GiB (binary, 2 to the tenth power, such as 1MiB = 1024KiB), but the vertical user is generally understood to be 1MB = 1024KB. Therefore, in order to facilitate the understanding of Chinese culture, it is also possible to translate MiB into MB.
Also, depending on the manufacturer's and user's perceptions of the 1MB size, the actual capacity of many 160-gigabyte hard disks is less than 160 gigabytes per computer's actual 1MB = 1024 KB, which may explain why the newly purchased hard disks are not as big as it indicates.
