HGST releases 1.5 TB mobile 2.5-inch hard drive

Hitachi Global Storage Technology (HGST), now owned by Western Digital, has released a new 1.5 TB mobile 2.5-inch hard drive that is just 9 mm thick. The drive comes with three magnetic platters yet keeps the 9 mm thickness. Until this moment other mobile hard drives have been limited to two platters only and of course lower capacities.

The drive is known as Travelstar 5K1500 and offers 32 MB of cache, support for SATA 3.0, low noise of just 2.5 dBa and platters that spin at 5400 rpm. Market debut is expected next month but in Q3 2013 HGST will release an enhanced EA version that will be suitable for 24/7 loading. Tech specs will likely remain the same.

Pricing is unknown.
