Toshiba rolls out new enterprise 2.5-inch HDDs

Written by Slobodan Simic

With 15k RPM spin speed


Toshiba has updated its line of enterprise hard disk drives with two new models, the MK01GRRB and the MK01GRRR, both packing 300GB of capacity squeezed into a 2.5-inch form factor. Although the 300GB doesn't sound that much bear in mind that these drives have a 15,000 RPM spin speed.

The only difference that we can see regarding the specs of the MK01GRRB and the MK01GRRR is that the latter one has features self-encryption technology. As far as the other specs go, both models feature a top capacity of 300GB, 6.0Gbps interface and 15.000 RPM spin speed, something that you don't see everyday in an average 2.5-inch HDD.

Of course, in order to keep the power consumption at lowest possible value, these drives feature an enhanced power condition state that reduces drive spin in idle state. Both models should start to ship in volume in Q1 2012. Despite Toshiba's claim that they are the first ones with such a drive, Seagate also has its Savvio HDD series with similar, if not identical, specs.

15,000 RPM spin speed HDDs=too noisy, too much heat,much slower that SSD, expensive...
can't think about single advantage over SSD

MK01GRRR? :-) Best SKU code since intel named their slowest chip "SLAQR"

Price and capacity when you compare them to 'enterprise' level SSDs. Just go and have a look at the prices for 100GB SSDs that Dell sell with their servers.

Quoting stephenbrooks:
MK01GRRR


I was surprised that noone at Fudzilla noted that :-)

If you take a look at the image it says MK3001GRRB but the other model would be MK3001GRRR, even better :-)

Wow!!! I want one :D My toshiba 500GB 2.5HDD is less noisy and less heat compared to other 4 brands I have yet it is comparably fast. Yeah Made in Philippines better than China.

Toshiba HDDs now are far superior than those mass produced HDDs with less quality. So far I was surprised and impressed on its quality these days.
