World’s Thinnest Hard Disk
Seagate introduced the Momentus Thin drive. This is the world’s Thinnest 2.5" HDD for laptops, netbooks, backup devices and consumer electronics. At a wafer thin 7mm in height 25 percent slimmer than traditional 9.5mm 2.5inch laptop hard drives. Of all netbook computers available today, 90% feature 9.5mm 2.5inch laptop drives because solid state and 1.8" hard drives are largely cost-prohibitive for this market. The Momentus Thin drive provides affordable, thin storage for netbooks and slim laptops, enabling computer makers to offer systems that reach a broader market.
The Momentus Thin drive features two capacity points 250GB and 160GB an 8MB cache, a Serial ATA 3Gb/second interface and a 5400RPM spin speed. Seagate Momentus 5400RPM and 7200RPM hard drives in the traditional 9.5mm height combine the industry’s broadest feature set including self encryption, FIPS 140-2 certification and free fall sensors with up to 640GB of capacity, fast 3Gb/second Serial ATA interface speeds, cache sizes as large as 16MB, and among the highest hard drive shock tolerance, acoustics and reliability specifications for entry level, mainstream and high performance laptops.
