Compact Samsung drives

Samsung has announced details on a pair of hard drives claimed to have the largest capacities of their type. The first is a new version of the Spinpoint M5, which as the company has previously hinted, is a 250GB, 5,400rpm drive designed for the 2.5-inch laptop format. It will begin production later this month, and use an 8MB cache, with a 1.5Gbps SATA interface. Power consumption is rated at 2W.

The other drive is from Samsung's 1.8-inch Spinpoint N2 series, which now has a 120GB model. Its production is expected to begin in July, and it will be used primarily in mobile products, including GPS systems, compact laptops and -- Impress speculates -- audio players like the iPod. Manufacturers will be able to specify whether the drive is used at 3,600 or 4,200rpm. [via Impress Watch]
