Product info

With the MKxx59GSXP Toshiba supports the demand for high capacity extremely compact mobile storage. The 2.5-inch HDD is the world’s first drive capable of delivering up to 750GB of storage capacity in a two-platter design (as of launch date 25 March 2010).

With a profile of only 9.5mm it is ideal for integration into premium notebooks, high-end PCs and portable external hard disk drives. The 2.5-inch HDD’s operation speed of 5,400RPM allows a fast internal transfer rate of up to 1,363Mb/s and provides a market-leading areal density of 541.4Gbit/in². This extends its possible uses from high end personal computing and data storage into the set-top box and Personal Video Recorder segments.

The MKxx59GSXP series features an Advanced Sector Format Technology, which uses 4K byte-per-sector formatting and improved error-correcting code functions to provide maximum error detection and more efficient use of the storage surface area.
