The result is Western Digital's first SSHD. SSHD, the industry term for hybrid drive is part SSD and part spinner. In this case, the marriage of a special SanDisk iSSD that is between 8GB and 24GB depending on the OEM customer, and a 5mm slim Western Digital hard drive.

 

 

We finished testing Western Digital's 5mm Blue drive right before walking out of the door for Computex.

 

Look for a review of that product first and a follow up from Tyler on the UltraSlim Black SSHD.
