Toshiba claims its 2.5-inch drives feature high storage density, decreased energy consumption, a better signal-to-noise ratio and produce less heat when compared to slightly larger 3.5 HDDs. The drives are suitable for a variety of applications including laptop and mobile computers, video recorders, gaming consoles, external storage devices, converged TVs, media editing suites and printers.
Along with the introduction of this high-capacity drive, Toshiba also announced a high-end 7,200 RPM performance drive class, which provides a capacity of up to 200 Gbytes.
To help protect its drives, Toshiba developed a freefall sensor option available with certain models. The freefall sensor is equipped with accelerometers, which will respond to a 10-inch or greater fall and trigger the heads of the drive to retract from the platter and lock down in a data-safe position.
