Toshiba Offers New 2.5” Mobile Hard Disk Drives

Toshiba Corporation today announced the launch of nine new 2.5-inch hard disk drives that employ the company's latest advances in HDD technology. The new drives include the MK3252GSX, which achieves an industry-leading capacity of 320GB, and the MK2049GSY, which improves performance with a 7,200rpm rotational speed. Toshiba will mass produce the drives in turn, starting from November. The MK3252GSX uses an improved read-write head and enhanced magnetic layer to boost areal density and achieves a storage capacity of 320GB. The high-speed MK2049GSY offers a rotation speed of 7,200rpm and also integrates a large capacity 16MB buffer memory. Both models support an optional Free Fall Sensor function, which detects falling HDD and parks the head before it crashes. Toshiba will feature the new drives at the IFA 2007, one of the worlds's largest consumer electronics trade fairs, which will be held in Berlin, Germany, from August 31 to September 5.Source: StreetInsider

This would be great in my PS3. Seeing as how I got a link that now tells me how to do it easily, this might be my next purchase. I can put a multitude of OS on it and have tons of room for demos and videos ::muhaha::

I have a couple of Buffalo Linkstation fileservers at 120MB. Putting these in as upgrades will make them even quieter and even lower consumption. Nice :)
