Product info

Toshiba Storage Device Division introduces the industry’s most advanced 1.8-inch HDD to date: The new 160GB 1.8-inch hard disk drive.

The MK1626GCB reinforces Toshiba’s technical and manufacturing expertise by offering 160GB on only 2 platters. Featuring the CE-ATA interface, which is optimised for consumer electronics products, Toshiba’s new 160GB HDD builds upon growing market demand for high capacity, lightweight next generation mobile media devices like mp3 players and personal media players. Alongside the increase in capacity, the 160GB HDD operates at only 3.600 rpm. Due to this speed rate the drive offers extreme high energy efficiency and extraordinary battery life compared with conventional HDDs, which is very important for consumer electronic devices.

With the MK1626GCB, Toshiba Storage Device Division is offering consumer electronics designers the perfect medium to develop high performance products that offer the optimum combination of low power consumption and substantial storage in a highly portable form factor.
