Samsung readies 500GB notebook HDD

Posted on Monday, January 07 2008 @ 00:00:12 CET by


Samsung unveiled a new 2.5" Spinpoint M6 hard drive with a capacity of 500GB. The firm says this is the first 2.5" notebook HDD that fits in the industry's standard 9.5mm height dimension.
“We continue to raise the bar for high capacity 500GB 2.5” hard drives,“ said Andy Higginbotham, director of hard drive sales and marketing, Samsung Semiconductor. “Our Spinpoint M6 500GB extends the data storage capacity for notebook PCs and readily fits within the tens of millions of notebook PCs that ship every quarter with no modification to the notebook PC chassis, giving users more storage power than ever before.“

Samsung’s new Spinpoint M6 500GB consists of three 166GB platters in a 2.5” hard disk drive frame measuring just 9.5mm in height. Mainstream notebook PCs can now support capacity of up to one terabyte by installing two Spinpoint M6 500GB drives.

The Spinpoint M6 500GB hard drive features a 5400rpm spindle speed, a 8MB cache, and 3.0Gbps SATA interface with a free fall sensor and a rotational vibration sensor available as optional features. Perpendicular Magnetic Recording technology enables the 500GB drive to store 160,000 digital images, 125 hours of DVD movies, or 60 hours of high definition video images. The drive also features Samsung’s Flying on Demand head technology that improves recording stability over changing temperature ranges.
The drive will be available in March.
