Samsung SpinPoint MT2 latest to hit 1TB in mobile

Samsung became the latest to crack the 1TB barrier for notebook hard drives late Monday with the Spinpoint MT2. The 2.5-inch drive fits into a full-height 12.5mm (half-inch) bay by using newer density storage that fits 333GB per platter. While not the first such drive, Samsung has claimed a speed edge with 20 percent faster transfer speeds and four percent less power use than its Western Digital equivalent.

Every MT2 disk spins at 5,400RPM and connects to SATA and SATA II on any platform. Native command queuing is active for those operating systems that support it, Samsung said. Both 1TB and 750GB capacities are shipping today, though the company hasn't said whether the MT2 line will be available in stand-alone form or only pre-installed with notebooks.

    Sorry, Samsung is one of the few I've had luck with. As opposed to the crash monsters at Seagate.
