Western Digital Corp.’s subsidiary HGST on Monday introduced the industry’s first mobile hard drive that combines 1TB capacity with 7200rpm spindle speed. The drives are available for mobile applications that require improved performance and enhanced storage capacities as well as for external storage solutions.

HGST Travelstar hard drives are available in 2.5”/9.5mm form-factor and are based on two sixth-generation PMR 500GB platters. This drive leverages Advanced Format, which increases the physical sector size from 512 bytes to 4096 (4K) bytes to improve drive capacities and error correction capabilities. The HDD features 32MB of cache as well as Serial ATA-6Gb/s interface.

“Computers may come and go, but your personal data remains and continues to grow exponentially, which is why you need reliable storage solutions to help store, preserve, and manage your most valued data. By including the new HGST Travelstar drive in our Touro Mobile Pro and HGST retail hard drive kit, we continue to give consumers multiple storage options with the best performance, capacity and reliability for their digital lives,” said Mike Williams, vice president and general manager, HGST branded business.

The new Travelstar HDD is available in the HGST hard drive retail kit for $99.99 as well as in the Touro Mobile Pro USB 3.0 external storage solution for 109.99.
