Computex Taipei 2013 - Once you go black....you never go back to blue? Western Digital's performance line for consumers is the Black Series. With flash increasing performance the company decided it was time to add a little flash magic to their proven mechanical products.

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.
