I-O Data to Release a 1 TB 2.5-inch SSHD

Next month I-O Data is set to introduce its very own SSHD (solid state hybrid drive), a 2.5-inch storage solution that features 1 TB worth of platter storage and 8 GB of NAND Flash memory that can store frequently-used files for much quicker access.

Named HDN-H1.0, the upcoming drive has a SATA 6.0 Gbps interface, it spins at 5,400 RPM, and is bundled with a SATA to USB 3.0 cable that allows for easier data migration. I-O Data's 1 TB SSHD will be released around mid-December and will cost 21,000 yen (~ 207 USD).

Slightly odd that they keep making them with 5,400 RPM. (Ultra stability, huh?)
Typo with "filed," there.
I still am wondering if we can defrag these drives, as well.

When it comes to mobile drives (at least) it seems manufacturers are moving away from 7,200 RPM. As for the defrag, some people say it's fine, but for example HP (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c03821563) says no.

Not really stability as much as power savings.

I miss the 15K rpm drives. Even the 10K Velociraptor ones.
