Since current technology focuses a lot in shrinking everything it comes as little surprise to see that most storage media manufacturers nowadays choose to favor the developing of 1.8" and 2.5" media over the far more popular and widely distributed 3.5" ones. This certainly explains the why although 3 years ago the 2.5" HDD with the highest capacity was 750GB (highest capacity 3.5" has 3TB) just 1 year ago we breached the 2TB barrier (highest capacity 3.5" was and still is 4TB) and just a few months ago we also witnessed the appearance of 2TB 2.5" SSDs so it's really only a matter of time before we see 2.5/3TB 2.5" HDDs/SSDs in the market. That being said most people i know still use 500GB 2.5" drives both in their laptops and for their portable needs but since many of them are starting to experience the limitations of just having 500GB we decided to focus a bit on some of the latest 2.5" hard disk drives to hit the market and we will start by testing the latest Travelstar 7K1000 1TB 2.5" SATA III model by HGST.
