Toshiba have just announced their release of the MQ03ABB300 to the market, the industry's first 2.5-inch HDD to achieve 750GB per platter - using a total of 4 platters to achieve 3TB total storage.
Using perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) technology, this advancement by Toshiba is a great data-storage addition to any traveling laptop, especially if you plan to use this device as your main system. Other options include form-factor computer system implementation, NAS storage or small portable HDD functions.
Set as an upgrade to their 4-platter 2TB MQ01ABB200 drive, this 3TB option provides the same low energy consumption values but with 50 percent more storage space.
