Toshiba Electronics Europe has announced its new MQ04 Series 1TB HDD, which is compatible with notebook PCs, game systems, all-in-one slim-line desktop systems, set-top box appliances and other applications requiring high capacity and durable storage. The MQ04 series single-disk model delivers 1TB of data storage capacity in an ultra-compact 2.5", 7mm height form factor.
The drive’s 6Gbit/s SATA interface and 5,400 rotational speed combined with a large 128MiB buffer and consistent seek performance, result in a 34% higher internal transfer rate performance when compared to the previous 1TB MQ01 series models. The new model is also quieter and weighs less than prior generations.
“The Toshiba MQ04 1TB model is at the leading edge of mobile client HDD technology and value, offering capacity and reliable performance without increasing weight in portable PCs,” said Noriaki Katakura, General Manager of Toshiba Electronics Europe, HDD Business Unit.
Toshiba recently revealed that it was the fastest growing vendor in the HDD space for 2016. The new MQ04 series 1TB model is another testament to Toshiba’s determination to meet customer demand with drives that offer variety, dependability, and efficiency for every need.
