Seagate Technology Wednesday said the newest member of its expanded line of notebook hard drives, the new Momentus 5400.2 hard drive with capacities up to 100GB and areal density of 50GB per disc, was shipping to customers.

“We see Seagate's partnerships in the notebook PC market growing with our expanding range of hard drive capacities and spin speeds. Momentus 5400.2 is bringing unsurpassed technology and the highest product quality to system builders now, helping them deliver the most advanced and reliable notebook PCs to their customers,” said Brian Dexheimer, Seagate executive vice president of Global Sales and Marketing.

Momentus 5400.2 hard disk drive is among the industry’s first to offer a huge 100GB capacity and enhanced productivity with its 5400rpm spin speed. At the same time, Seagate is the first company to start shipments of its 100GB mobile HDD, as rivals like Toshiba and Fujitsu have not made announcements about commercial shipments of 100GB mobile hard drives.

Seagate’s new HDD also offers G-Force Protection technology that allows Momentus 5200.2 to survive resistance of up to 900Gs of non-operating shock. Momentus is also designed to maintain maximum performance longer when subjected to high levels of shock, and when vibration occurs in multi-drive environments such as entry-level server applications.

A number of executives from various notebook companies, such as HP, ASI and NS Optimum, praised Seagate’s Momentus HDD.

Seagate, for the first time in the industry of HDDs for notebooks, offers 5-year warranty for all Momentus 5200.2 units shipped through authorized distribution and retail channels.
