Toshiba invents thinnest AV hard drive ever

June 5th, 2006 · No Comments

AV laptops are about to become a good deal more accommodating. Toshiba has announced a new 2.5 inch HDD that uses perpendicular magnetic recording technology to achieve the industry’s largest 200GB capacity with only two platters. The new drive is a slimline 9.5 millimetres, making it ideal for multimedia laptop use. Toshiba plans to start mass production in August.
“We are delighted to announce the addition of this new HDD to our line-up of perpendicular magnetic recording drives,”” said Kazuyoshi Yamamori, Vice president of Storage Device Division at Toshiba Corporation’s Digital Media Network Company. “Larger data capacity in a small form factor HDD is essential for continued advances in the notebook PC market and in personal audio and video applications.”
The 200GB thindrive will make its public debut at Computex Taipei 2006, which runs in Taiwan from June 6 to 10.
