The new drives arrive with SATA 6Gbps connectivity, with the SAS MG04SCA and SATA MG04ACA available at up to an astounding 5TB. These 5TB HDDs still spin at 7,200RPM, which will give enterprise users plenty to smile about. The new Toshiba MG04 enterprise class HDDs will come in either a SAS or SATA interface - depending on what is required. Samples will begin shipping this month.
