Seagate ships first 2.5-inch 2 TB hard drives

The acclaimed hard drive maker Seagate has announced the first shipments of the company’s brand new 2 TB 2.5-inch hard drive. Seagate says the drive is extremely thin – the handset is just 7 mm thick and consists of two 1 TB platters that use shingled magnetic recording.

There aren’t that many tech details on the new Seagate hard drive except that the maximum data transfer speed supported is 100 MB/second. Given this chances are the platters of the new 2 TB hard drives spin at 5400 rpm. The new drive is also 25 per cent lighter than the previous generation and fully supports SATA 3.

The new Seagate Mobile 2 TB hard drive is now in stores where it costs around EUR 120.
