Fujitsu has unveiled 2.5″ 300GB capacity hard drives for notebooks which is the largest available capacity of currently. The drives are powered by 4200 rpm drive motor and use perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) for storing data on the hard drive. These hard drives will be connected via SATA interface featuring native command queuing (NCQ) technology and expected power consumption is around 1.6 watt. The pricing of the new drives as of now is not yet revealed.
The move to make larger capacity hard drives is always welcomed as the space needed to store your data is always growing. I would love to add this 300GB drive in my notebook, the only thing that I feel is not appropriate here is the 4200 rpm motor which drives the hard drive. I currently feel that even 5,400 rpm hard drives which ships with most notebooks are also not very fast performers. With introduction of these new drives the laptop hard drives are now matching the desktop hard drives in terms of capacity but they have a long way to go in terms of performance.
