Seagate today also launched several other storage devices; the 250GB Momentus 5400.4 2.5-inch notebook hard drive, and the first encrypting 1TB desktop PC drive. Momentus 5400.4 is designed for a wide range of systems including mainstream notebook PCs, workstations, external storage enclosures and small form factor desktop PCs. This 2.5-inch SATAII, 5400-rpm drive delivers up to 250GB of capacity on just two platters using perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) technology. Next in the list is the Barracuda FDE (full disc encryption) 1TB hard drive, the world’s first 3.5-inch desktop PC drive with native encryption to prevent unauthorized access to data on lost or stolen hard drives or systems. Seagate also unveiled new Maxtor OneTouch products. The new Maxtor OneTouch 4 family includes: Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus, OneTouch 4 Mini, and OneTouch 4. Momentus 5400.4 is expected to ship in the fourth quarter of calendar 2007, while the Barracuda FDE is on track to ship in 2008. The Maxtor OneTouch 4 family is available now – with the exception of the 1TB OneTouch 4 Plus, which is scheduled to ship in late October. Please visit Seagate.com for more information.

yeah with all the 'sold state' drives that have enter develpment

I still hope the Mobile side gets better selection of hard drives 250Gb would be pretty sweet but chances are its going to cost me a kidney.

its not just you. Seagate is usually the driving force behind all the HDD stuff or at least a motivator. These are some nice looking products and if the price is right, that 250 GB HDD 2.5"er could be in my ps3 in a few weeks.

Yeah, perpendicular drives and SSD's....big new tech.

As far as these drives, 250 GB@ 5400 rpm on the mobile side is great. Also hardware level encryption is always good to.
