The 2.5" MQ04 HDD is compatible with various systems- notebooks, PCs, game systems, all-in-one slim-line desktop systems, set-top box appliances, and other applications requiring high capacity and durability storage. Featuring 6 Gbit/s SATA interface and 5,400 RPM combined with a large 128MiB buffer, the MQ04 sees an increased performance of 34 percent increase over its predecessor, the 1TB MQ01 series.

"Achieving 1 TB per disk capacity is a big advancement in both value and performance, and without increasing weight in portable PCs," said Scott Wright, Director of HDD Product Marketing at Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. "With a field-proven single disk 7 mm design heritage, the new Toshiba MQ04 1 TB model offers reliable performance and capacity at the leading edge of mobile client HDD technology and value."

Available now, but with no pricing yet released, the MQ04 1TB is also quieter and weighs less than prior generations and is the perfect choice for mobile storage applications.
