Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
Sometimes 3TB isn’t enough and sometimes 5400RPM or variable speeds aren’t what you need either, and for just that Toshiba has announced their latest release; the Toshiba Desktop 3.5-inch 7200RPM SATA3. The new hard disks are now available with capacities of 4TB and 5TB.
“Toshiba has been developing and manufacturing hard drives for more than 20 years,” said Maciek Brzeski, Vice President of Branded Storage Products, Toshiba Digital Products Division. “The time is right to upgrade our offerings not only to meet, but to get ahead of consumers’ expectations by expanding our offering of our internal 3.5″ hard drives to 4TB and 5TB sizes.”
The Toshiba desktop drives use proven technologies such as Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR), Native Command Queuing (NCQ), TMR Head Recording and Serial ATA DIPM that together will give you a solid drive with good performance and features such as Internal shock sensors.
Both the 4TB and 5TB models have a 128MB cache buffer and have an average seek time of 10.5ms. They are compatible with most major operating systems and are backed by a 3-year warranty.
The new Desktop 3.5-inch internal hard drives are available for purchase at select retailers and on toshiba.com. MSRP prices are set to $299.00 for the 4TB model and $399.00 for the 5TB model.
