Toshiba To Launch 3TB 3.5-inch HDDs

Toshiba will launch a family of 3.5-inch HDDs, produced with manufacturing equipment acquired in a recent transaction with Western Digital.

The Japanese company will released four series of models and a total of 12 variants: four models offering 3TB capacities, complemented by models offering 2TB and 1.5TB of storage. Volume shipments of the drives, produced with manufacturing equipment acquired in a recent transaction with Western Digital, will start at the end of this month. The new HDD models are added to Toshiba's current line of 250GB to 1TB consumer-use HDDs.

The DT01ACA300, DT01ACA200 and DT01ACA150 models offer a rotational speed of 7,200 rpm, appropriate for high performance desktop PCs. The DT01ACA300V, DT01ACA200V and DT01ACA150V are equipped with a streaming function to handle data transfer within a specified time, and are optimized for applications such as digital video recorders that must record and playback video data without any delay. Toshiba has also responded to energy-conscious users with low power consumption models offering rotational speeds of 5,700 rpm and 5,940 rpm; compared to the 7,200rpm variants, these models reduce power consumption by 19 to 25%.
