Toshiba the pioneer in small form factor hard disk drives, continues to deliver innovative storage solutions with today’s announcement of the industry’s highest-capacity series of SATA 1.8-inch HDDs. The new 5,400 RPM HDDs come in single-platter 80GB and dual-platter 160GB models, delivering market-leading capacity, high-performance and durability in compact packages for space-efficient mobile PC systems.
The storage capacities offered by the 160GB MK1617GSG and 80GB MK8017GSG mirror those of larger form factor HDDs, while reducing the storage footprint by nearly 40 percent compared with the 2.5-inch form factor. Combined with the new micro-SATA connector, Serial-ATA 1.5Gb/s
interface and 5,400 RPM spin speed, the MKxx17GSG series offers small and light-weight solutions at increased data transfer rates for enhanced performance in sub-notebook PCs. (link)
