Toshiba Corp. on Monday lifted the curtains off the industry’s highest-performing hard disk drive in 2.5”/7mm form-factor. The new series from Toshiba i.e. MQ01ACF drives, offer up to 500GB capacity and boast with 7200 RPM spindle speed.
ADATA’s current lineup of 2.5-inch solid state drives are 9.5mm thick. While this does conform to the standard many new devices like slim laptops and ultrabooks require drives to be only 7mm thick. ADATA has now reduced the size of their 2.5-inch solid state drive lineup to 7mm. This way you can use ADATA drives in these devices. These new 7mm drives will ship with plastic holders so they can still be placed in 9.5mm slots.
All the spotlights are now focusing on the surge of Ultrabook, Team Group, the leading brand names in the world in memory storage, is rolling out the new Team Ultra L2 SSD. Only 7mm in thickness, it is the most compact model in the market. It can be installed on the new generation of Ultrabook with ease, improving significantly the booting speed and read-write performance. The model provides substantial battery life and shock resistance. It is like a size of featherweight boxer packed with heavyweight champion performance. It is the ultimate upgrade choice for your Ultrabook.
It has been a really long time since we have reviewed a product from Mushkin. Mushkin has mainly been known for memory products, but like most memory companies have moved into the storage realm with solid state drives. Today we are taking a look at their top tier SATA 6GB/s Chronos Deluxe Drive. The big difference between this drive and the normal Chronos is that it uses premium Toshiba toggle mode NAND memory and the Chronos uses asynchronous NAND memory.
