WD Shipping World’s First 5 mm 2.5” Hard Drive
Author: Cássio LimaDate: April 23, 2013 - 7:32 AM PST
Category: Storage
More Info: http://www.wd.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=800#tab11

Today, Western Digital announced it is shipping the world’s first ultra-slim 2.5”, 5 mm hard drives (this ultra-slim form factor reduces weight by up to 36 percent compared with a standard 9.5 mm drive) and solid state hybrid drives (SSHD), which are designed for integration into the slimmest devices and space-constrained computing environments. With 500 GB of storage capacity and models with high performance-enabling solid state hybrid drive technology, this slim product line helps to address the tradeoff system designers often make between capacity, physical size, and performance.

Shipping today to select industrial distributors and OEM customers in 500 GB capacities, WD Blue 2.5” 5 mm hard drives, (model: WD5000MPCK) has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of USD 89.00. WD Blue 2.5”, 5 mm hard drives are covered by a two-year limited warranty. WD Black SSHD versions are currently shipping to OEM’s and integrators with both WD proprietary hybrid technology and industry standard SATA technology.
