High Capacity 2.5" Hard Disk drives
As an ageing [Computer] storage geek I still keep my eyes on the latest hard disk technology.
And so I was fascinated to read about Samsung's portable 4TB hard disk at storagereview
I checked Samsung UK's internal drive homepage and could only find at best their M9T Spinpoint drives which have a maximum 2TB capacity in a 9.5 mm high package.
So given the 19.85 mm height of the 4TB P3 portable drive I could imagine that they just stuck 2 drives together in a single box.
But apparently not!
Kitguru reports that the external 4TB package is based on a single Samsung Spinpoint M10T 2.5" hard disk with 5, 800GB platters. (I did notice a rather portly 15mm depth).
So Samsung hard drives, of course part of Seagate now, well they are leaping ahead of the competition.
