HGST (formerly Hitachi Global Storage Technologies and now a Western Digital company) announced today what they’re claiming to be the industry’s first 1 TB, 9.5 mm, 2.5-inch, 7,200 rpm hard disk drive (HDD). The new Travelstar hard drive is ideally suited for upgrading notebooks, game consoles, and other high-capacity, high-performance personal storage products. This standard 9.5 mm drive leverages Advanced Format, which increases the physical sector size from 512 bytes to 4,096 (4K) bytes to improve drive capacities and error correction capabilities, as well 7,200 rpm performance, 32 MB cache buffer and SATA-600 interface. Other highlights include shock tolerance, a halogen-free design for an eco-friendly footprint, and low power consumption for sturdy unplugged notebook performance.

The new Travelstar HDD is available in the HGST Hard Drive Retail Kit (USD 99.99) as well as in the award-winning Touro Mobile Pro USB 3.0 external storage solution (USD 109.99) for simple add-on storage and backup.
