oshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC), a committed technology leader, announces its new MQ04 Series 2TB HDD model MQ04ABD200, designed for use in notebook PCs, all-in-one and slim-line desktop systems, and other applications requiring high capacity storage and 2.5-inch mobile-class durability.
The MQ04ABD200 dual-disk model delivers 2 TB of storage capacity in a compact 2.5-inch, 9.5 mm height form factor. The drive’s 6 Gbit/s SATA interface and 5,400 rpm performance, combined with a large 128 MB buffer, result in a 34 percent increase in maximum transfer rates and a 50 percent improvement in power efficiency compared to Toshiba’s previous 1 TB mobile-class model generation, MQ01ABD100.
“Achieving 2 TB capacity in the industry-standard 2.5-inch form-factor is a big advance in both value and performance,” said Scott Wright, Director of HDD Marketing for Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. “With a field-proven two disk 9.5 mm design heritage, the new MQ04 2 TB model offers excellent value and capacity in a space-efficient design.”
General availability of the MQ04 2 TB model shipment will start today.
