HGST’s 1.5TB laptop drive is the densest hard disk available

HGST's laptop drive is the thinnest, densest 15TB drive on the market

If you’re looking for pure storage for the dollar, SSDs have nothing on good old hard disks. And WD subsidiary HGST has packed more gigabytes into a smaller space than ever before with the new Travelstar 5K1500. It’s a 2.5-inch, 9.5mm thin model packing 1.5TB, giving your notebook a huge shot of extra storage space while taking up very little physical space. The two platter drive boasts 694Gb per square inch and draws a mere 1.8W, though it must spin at a miserly 5,400 RPM. Still, it can absorb 400Gs of shock for 2ms and keep on ticking — so it should have no trouble surviving reentry. HGST’s targeting notebooks, external drives, gaming consoles and AIO PC markets with the model, and will also offer an enhanced availability (EA) version for power sensitive servers and other 24/7 systems. There’s no price yet, but it’ll be available in June — so you might be able to take that film editing project on the road after all.
