Toshiba Launches New 2TB & 3TB Desktop Hard Drives
Toshiba today announced the broadening of its hard disk drive (HDD) offerings with additional models featuring 2 and 3 terabytes (TB). The DT01ACA Desktop series of 3.5-inch SATA 7,200 RPM HDDs are targeted at desktop all-in-one and gaming PCs, home servers, external HDDs, and consumer electronics products such as set-top boxes (STBs) and digital video recorders (DVRs). The DT01ACA Desktop HDDs feature 1 terabyte-per-platter technology in capacities ranging from 500GB to 3TB (1, 2 or 3 platters). With 64MB cache buffer (1.5TB, 2TB, and 3TB models) the DT01ACA drives are designed for faster data processing. The 2 and 3TB 3.5-inch HDD series will start shipping this month. More can be found out about this drive on its product page.
"Over two hundred million computer systems and consumer electronics devices will ship in 2012 equipped with a 3.5-inch desktop-class HDD", according to John Rydning, research vice president for hard disk drives at IDC. "With a broader 3.5-inch desktop HDD product lineup, Toshiba will be poised to address a larger piece of the overall storage device market."
