Toshiba 200GB Internal HDD


Recently, Toshiba 2.5 inch 200GB internal HDD was announced by Toshiba Corporation, the pioneer in small form factor hard disk drives that's designed for in-vehicle and industrial applications. It is the industry’highest capacity HDD available for automotive applications with a rotational speed of 4,200 RPM and serial ATA interface.

Background
From desktop and mobile PCs to other digital consumer products, you will easily found that 2.5-inch hard disk drives are now applying in various fields. And the market has a greedy appetite for larger data capacities. As a result, Toshiba sustain its ability to add to areal density, operate speed and overall drive performance in order to meet the customer need. And the lunch of the new drive will enable manufacturers to deliver high storage capacity systems that offer exceptional levels of reliability.

Some Key Features of the Toshiba 2.5 inch 200GB Internal HDD

1. 200GB Storage Capacity, The Most Obvious Feature
This new product of Toshiba internal HDD has a storage capacity of 200GB which has realized the industry’s largest capacity in a 2.5-inch HDD for automotive application.

2.Extremely Quiet "Silent Seek" Operation
The Toshiba 2.5 inch 200GB internal HDD has realized a limits acoustic seek noise of 23db,which is 3db decrease when compared with previous 80GB MK8057GSC.

3. High Vibration Resistance
Compared with HDD in PCs, HDD in automobiles need two or three times the vibration resistance. And Toshiba has added a head positioning technology and increased the rigidity of the enclosure. Therefore, the new HDD have a vibration resistance of 24.5m/s2.

4. High Speed Processing
Compared to the 80GB MK8057GSC( the Toshiba’s previous series of automotive 2.5-inch HDD model),this new product accelerate data processing by improving the average seek time by nearly 25%, and the internal data transfer rate up to 78%.

5. Able to Stand Different Altitude Variations
The NEW drive can also withstand altitude variations of -300 to 12,000 meters and temperatures from -300 to +85-degrees during non-operating phases, and -300 to 5,650 meters while operating.

6. Low Atmospheric Pressure Operation
After adopting the latest the design technology of aerodynamic in the head slider design, the new model can read and write data under a low-pressure condition at high altitude.

7. Environmental Products
Toshiba added that the 200GB internal HDD is halogen free and fully compliant with RoHS regulation which is directive on the elimination of six hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. It has achieved chorine and bromine concentrations below 900ppm, and combined both below 1,500ppm. What’s more, through decreasing product power consumption and environmental burdens from the raw materials stage, it can also decrease C02 emissions across the product lifecycle by 230g every year.

These features mentioned above make it ideal for multimedia and navigation applications, which require a combination of high storage capacities and rapid data read operation to ensure user satisfaction. And this internal HDD model complies with the European Union’s RoHS directive on the elimination of six hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
