Seagate launches 2.5-inch perpendicular recording HDD

Posted on Thursday, June 09 2005 @ 00:53:30 CEST by

Seagate launched two new products for the mobile computer market. This includes the first 2.5-inch notebook hard drive with perpendicular recording. The HDD can store up to 160GB and runs at 5,400RPM. Here's a short look at the new offerings from Seagate for notebooks:

Momentus 5400.3 — the first 2.5-inch notebook drive utilizing perpendicular recording. Seagate's new 160GB disc drive will combine higher 5,400-rpm performance with 25 percent more capacity than the largest notebook drive currently available. The entire disc drive industry will eventually need to transition to the new perpendicular recording technology, and with this announcement, Seagate has now stated its claim to be there first.

Momentus FDE — Seagate will offer hardware-based full disc encryption technology on its new Momentus FDE family of hard drives, providing the industry's strongest protection against unauthorized access to data on stolen or retired notebook PCs. FDE technology requires only a user key to encrypt all data, not just selected files or partitions, on the drive.

Also launched by Seagate today are hard drives for the consumer electronics and desktop market.
