Preferred Solution: OCZ introduces TLC NAND in new budget Trion T100 SSD

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: OCZ introduces TLC NAND in new budget Trion T100 SSD

I've never had any problems with OCZ drives and I have 3 of them, one being an old 60 GB Agility 2 or 3 still in daily use. Maybe I've just been lucky thus far.

Performed a fresh Windows install on a new OCZ-TRION100 (SSD). Now, when I go to run Windows Update it stalls on "Checking for updates" message and never progresses. Most processes that use windows update are also failing. I have tried several different methods to fix this with no success yet.

I've cleared the SSD and freshly reinstalled Windows 7 more times than I can count in the pursuit of a fix. Each time I reinstall, I delete all partitions using the windows install disk interface. I run BIOS once the SSD is entirely un-allocated space. I attempted most of these fixes in either IDE or AHCI mode with varying results. Yet ultimately the problem persists.

I would post the Windows update error code, but since it never proceeds past "checking" and never stops "checking" unless stopped through CMD; I receive no legitimate error code or error message.

Is NAND is going to be replaced with PCM in next gen ssd's?

Micron tests next-gen SSD | ZDNet

Answer:The end of NAND SSD's

Based on the article, it sounds like a commercially available PCM based ssd is still a long way off. PCM used in next gen ssds? I doubt it, especially since PCM cost is 4X NAND.

Hi, everyone:
I bought an Intel SSD 530 120G for my laptop several days ago. It worked well with the OS Win8.1 Pro x64.
When I paid attention to the NAND writes, something make me confused.

The situation is as follow:
The SSD with the OS is the first(primary) Disk, and the HDD is the second one. I have moved the cache of IE, chrome and Firefox to the Hard Drive using IE setting or mklink command, and verified it correctly. With the explorer working, the written data stream from cache is produced in the HDD partition theoretically, also I have got this conclusion through the System's Resource Monitor and the Diskmon from Microsoft website. When I cached several Movies embedded in any explorer without other operation separately, there are lots of written data traffic produced in the HDD partition, and just little data wrote in system disk(SSD), it?s no doubt. Finally, each test(using one kind of explorer) improved less than 200Mb in Total Host Writes which is normal for system operating, but this process also consumed about 3Gb SSD's Total NAND writes in total in the CrystalDiskInfo 6.0.1. Also I have got the same result with the newly Intel SSD Toolbox, AIDA64 3.20 and CrystalDiskInfo 6.0.1. In fact, this written data traffic produced by explorer's cache in HDD is calculated into the SSD's total NAND writes.

Actually I'm not care of the SSD's wear, and I'm sure it couldn't reach the limited lifespan with normal usage until next generation product arrives. This accidental ... Read more

Answer:Intel SSD 530 Total NAND Writes Problem in Win8.1 x64

Hi, guys,
There are some supplementary data.
I have tested the total NAND writes in OS win7 x64 newly installed with the all x64 drivers, the chrome cache is moved to HDD partition, and the result is same as the one in win8.1. When the Value of Host Writes improved just one, namely 1*32Mb total host writes, there are almost 2Gb added to the total NAND writes. Followed is the graph from which we could get the monitoring data and the disk activity.
Finally, I speculate that there is a bug in the Intel 530 SSD firmware, DC22, if nohing wrong is in the testing environment.
Fig. 1 The beginning test capture.

Fig. 2 The final capture. The host writes improved 1, and the total NAND write nearly 2Gb, compared with the first graph.

Thank you for helping.

I clooned the hard drive. The bios is AHCI.
When i boot the SSD from the Dell Precision M6500 i got the message "inaccessible boot device"
When i boot the same SSD from other Dell (par exemple Inspriron R17) the disk is booting with no problems
The prosed repair didn't worked, the SSD is recognized in the BIOS and DOS-prompt accessible (letters X en E).
So i think it should be a BIOS problem or a driver issue.

Any idee how to solve the problem ?

For info, this has 2Gb RAM and 64Gb SSD. Not the fastest box in the world, but it does run very well.

W10 so far has performed better than W8.1 as I also noted when I did this on the Surface Pro 1st gen.

Downside is the small screen and using the standard desktop. Fat fingers and no really good stylus don't make that a joy to use. Screen seems a bit crisper which I also noted on the SP1.

If I recall correctly, that device utilizes a MicroSD card slot for storage. SO if you are running out of space see if you can get a bigger SD card. It likely would hold one around 64GB or larger But I don't know for sure.

Hi guys!
My problem is - as stated in the topic - laptop replacement.
I thought it would be easy - right now I am using Asus T100 which I love, but I thought that this was time to upgrade, and I don't want to upgrade much.
I basically need regular laptop that is portable (13 inch is max, realy I prefer 11.6 or 12, 12.5), has good battery life (let's say min. 6-7 hours) and a good screen (it doesn't have to be really high resolution). The performance doesn't really matter to me much (I don't do anything graphically intensive) - I just want a smooth experience like on my T100, but maybe a bit more of RAM (let's say 4 GB).
I don't need the 2 in 1 combo, I don't even need touch on my laptop.
I thought that would be easy - I just want an average laptop, but it's not. I can't find and laptop that would suit my needs. The only thing I could find is the Dell XPS12, but it has touch, and the hinge, which as I said earlier - I don't need.
Do you know if there is a laptop that is something like Dell XPS12, but without the touch etc?
Regards :)

I own a Thinkpad T61 (6457-E2G). Never set a power-on password. Used it for some time now with no problems what so ever. Recently accessed the BIOS looking to change a few settings when it asked me for a password. I pressed enter and was allowed to change most settings but not all. Judging by the icon ( when entering the password this should the power-on password (weird but ok). Using the same document and the hardware service manual I tried to remove the password by removing the batteries and booting up the machine. Instead of removing the password it now asks for a password when booting the machine. Reading the community posts the password asked when entering the BIOS should be the supervisor password to have all options available. A password I can't recall (my bet and my loss). The problem though is I can't use the laptop anymore since it asks now for a POP which I never set. How can I set the POP setting back to it's orinigal state (that is before executing the actions descriped in the Lenovo document)?
Thanks in advance.
Moderator Note; fixed link

Answer:Removing password introduces POP

Hi bozzy2k, welcome to the forum,
unfortunately the symbol for the supervisor password is today the same as that for the power on password, the document which you linked to isn't as up-to-date as it should be.  By removing the BIOS battery you have provoked the system to request the supervisor password as a change was made to the system.
The only options which can be suggested here are that you remember the password you don't recall setting, ask the prvious owner should you have purchased the system as used or exchange the mainboard.

You can?t say that the guys from the Pirate Bay are full of ideas and surprises. Their latest project is called Playble, a website that offers free music to the visitors while still paying the artists directly. This is the biggest difference to the dominating music portals such as iTunes that do not pay the artists but the record labels who in turn pay their artists. This concept eliminates the need for a man in the middle who collects the money and distributes it to the artists.
I?m not saying that the Music Industry will become obsolete, songs still have to be produced somehow but for this concept to work they are not necessary at all. You probably were thinking that this would surely mean an ad-driven service if users were able to download songs for free. This is apparently not the case and leads to a social experiment. Users pay a monthly subscription which is not a fixed price but a sum that the users can select themselves.
You pay the artists as much as you want. It remains to be seen if this idealistic system will be able to compete with the established music portals. It will be rather difficulty to find enough established musicians and bands who will support this project. I?m not an expert when it comes to contracts between artists and the Music Industry but I suppose the Music Industry will not allow their artists to upload songs to Playble.
So, it will have the usual selection of unknown and independent bands instead of major artists such as Madonna, Take That and ... Read more

CPU runs off 1 watt of electricity

VIA has developed a new fanless Eden ULV processor that chugs along at 500MHz, requiring just 1 watt of electricity to run. Whenever it is idle, the processor will sip a mere tenth of a watt - talk about efficiency! The low power requirements found in this new processor will target firms that design and engineer embedded systems which require low power consumption, while those looking for an eco-friendly design will definitely welcome this development. There will be 1GHz and 1.5GHz versions that consume 3.5 and 7.5 watts respectively as well in case you need more juice. When will such power saving measures reach the mass consumer market? Then we don't need those huge 600W monstrosities, unless you are running on a dual video card setup to meet Bioshock requirements.

Here is what worked for me to successfully capture and deploy an Image on an Asus T100TA Tablet:
To Capture the WIM:
• These instructions assume you have a basic understanding of OS Deployments and the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT).
• The source (aka “reference”) computer you are capturing should be in a workgroup, not joined to your domain. Disjoin your domain before continuing if necessary.
• You must have the same OS you’re trying to capture on the “reference” computer loaded into MDT – if your source computer is running Windows 7 Enterprise with Service Pack 1 x64 then that DVD/OS must be loaded into MDT
• For these instructions the computer running MDT will be referred to as \\MDT1 and the deployment share will be \Deploymentshare$
• These instructions will not include hitting “Next”, etc. unless that is the only action on a screen
Prepare your “reference” computer by installing your Operating System and any other customizations you will want. Once you have completed your build process continue on.
Setup MDT to Capture your image
1. Open MDT, then expand Deployments, then expand your deployment share
2. Right click “Task Sequences” and select “New Task Sequence”

Does the Asus T100 have a recovery partition?

Answer:how do i turn the wifi on on my Advent Monza T100?

Have you set up your Wifi by searching for your network name and inputting your pass phrase (or pass key)?The red circle might be just indicating that the Ethernet is not available.EDIT:Also press Windows key + R key then input ncpa.cpl in the Run box that comes up - hit Enter key. Do you see both the Ethernet and Wifi icons and is Wifi enabled?[Better add that you don't connect to Wifi using the Ethernet cable. You use one or the other]Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

I'm trying to use an external Samsung TV/monitor (model LN-T2642H) through HDMI. The native resolution of the monitor/TV is 1360X768, which is also the native resolution of ASUS T100.
If I try to use the monitor/TV as the only display, the device selected is Generic PnP Monitor and the native resolution of 1360X768 is not available for selection. Intel HD Graphics Control Panel only shows 1280X720 (selected) and 1920X1080 (too high for my monitor).

Is there a way to set up the 1360X768 resolution with the existing driver (up to date)? Is there another driver that I can download and that will allow this resolution? Can I use a different version of the Generic PnP Monitor that allows 1360X768 resolution?
With the only resolution available i.e., 1280X720 the quality is bad.

Many thanks,

Answer:Low resolution on external TV/Monitor (ASUS T100 Win 8.1)

On the screen resolution window, click advanced settings. Then click "list all modes" under the adapter tab. Now see if what you want is listed.

Anyone know how to solve the problem of "not enough hard disk space" when trying to put the Anniversary update on an Asus T100.
I have a 64Gb sdcard in as well but I assume the update must be ignoring that.
Tried clearing out as much as I could from the main ssd but still no joy.


Answer:Anniversary update on Asus T100 not enough space

Does the Asus T100 have a recovery partition? On devices with small ssds like yours, it's possible to move the recovery partition to an external drive, then reclaim the disk space used by the recovery partition. You can also make a system image to an external drive using software like Macrium Reflect and then the recovery partition isn't needed at all.

How much space does the installer say you need to free up?

My laptop keeps booting up but once it gets to the screen where (logo) "Advent" is displayed the screen goes dim and then restarts and keeps doing this loop? I had issues trying to start up windows last week, this is when when I booted up everything would be fine, login fine, but when I get to the desktop it would display a black screen, I tried fixing it but soon gave up after I tried booting up and it put me into a Automatic Repair boot loop and that's when I completely gave up! But this week I was determined to fix it but when I booted up it only displayed "advent" and then the screen goes dim and restarts and it keeps doing it!

For a few weeks now the Internet and Internet related apps have displayed the 'not responding' message on our Asus transformer t100. It is not to do with our Internet as other devices work. We have taken it to the local computer specialist a few times now who fiddles with it and it works for a few uses but then it reverts back and so we take it back to him. Once it starts not responding, every time after that we reopen Internet /switch off the laptop, it says that same thing and so we can't use the Internet. Any solutions? Is it a virus? Thanks

I have the following problem. My laptop is Satellite T110-10X with Windows 7 64bit.
When the computer enters sleep mode and after I wake it up with power button it turns on, I type my pasword and in less than a minute it freezes.

I try towait and wait for like 10 minutes but nothing happens. Strange thing is that this don't happen each time, but when it happens I had to turn it off by keeping power button pressed and restart it and sometimes the same problem during the restart.

Please can somebody help me with this. I have been reading a lot and can't fix it.


Answer:Satellite t100-10x freeze after sleep mode


I can remember that my old notebook froze sometimes only if the temperature increased to a higher level.
I don?t know if this could be the reason for your problems but it?s could be possible.

It could be also a software related issue. Maybe the new OS installation could help you but its not easy o say if it would help you?.

Anyway, the possible solutions should be checked in order to be sure what could be the reason for such OS blackouts?

Hi everyone,
I've finally finished installing a fresh copy of Windows 10 on my Asus T100. First impressions are great. If I'm not mistaken, it doesn't use as much disk space as Windows 8.1. I have 20 gigs of memory free out of the 29 available. Which is great. Plus, the OS feels smoother and faster.

I have a question. I've noticed in the Task Manager that the OS when idle uses only 500-600 MB of ram. Is it possible? Win 8.1 used up to 1.2-1.3 GB when idle. Are 500MB final, or when the OS is released is it going to use more ram?

Answer:Windows 10 memory usage on Asus T100

"Idle" really doesn't tell you much. If you just booted up, then it won't have a lot of memory allocated. However, once you start using it, then it will start caching more things and use more memory. This memory is typically available to be reclaimed by applications running in the system though, so you typically don't have to worry about it.

The OS allocates its initial buffers and caches based on the size of available memory in your system, so a system with 2GB of free RAM will start with less memory "available' than one with 4GB or 8GB.

I picked up a refurb Surface Pro 64GB from eBay this week for $500 and have been using the tablet. But I'm thinking about returning it and getting an ASUS T100 instead.
The Surface Pro (talking first gen) is really nice. But the battery life is nearly a deal breaker. And I'm not in love with the 2 pounds of weight or the $130 keyboard either. But I do like the full HD display, fast processor and SSD, and digitizer (just wish I had a better place to stick the pen).
I played with the ASUS T100 at Best Buy. I like the lighter weight and much longer battery life. The Baytrail and eMMC will be enough performance. The keyboard concerns me. It's hard to really test a keyboard on a store display counter, but I'm sure it's not going to be as nice as this stupid $130 Type Cover 2. I worry about the plastic back getting slippery in my hands as well. But it's almost half the price ($380 for 64GB).
So I feel conflicted between do I want the better laptop like experience in the Surface Pro (which includes being tethered to a power cord) or saving some money and going with the better tablet experience in the T100 until the perfect tablet arrives?
It's a dang shame the Surface 2 doesn't have a Baytrail and Windows 8, that would be pretty close to perfect.
PS. Plan B is to just return the Type Cover 2 and waiting for the Power Cover next year to supplement my battery life.

Answer:Deciding between an ASUS T100 and a refurb Surface Pro

What about the Dell Venue 11 Pro? $499 for the tablet (Baytrail and 64gb) and $129 for a truly awesome KB with extra battery. The Asus T100 KB build quality is major weakness...

Microsoft on Monday introduced the final version of a new security tool for locking down computers that operate in shared environments. The Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows XP enables administrators to restrict users from changing system settings and running unauthorized software.

The toolkit, which is specifically designed for Internet cafes, school computer labs and libraries, can also keep out viruses and spyware by resetting a hard drive to a "clean" state each day. By removing advanced features, the desktop is also simplified to improve the end-user experience, Microsoft says.

The three primary features of the program include: User Restrictions, Windows Disk Protection and Profile Manager.

A beta version of the toolkit went live in June, and over 60,000 customers have downloaded it since that time and provided extensive feedback, Microsoft told BetaNews. "Customer Involvement in our public newsgroup has been terrific."

Changes in the 1.0 release include new restrictions added to the User Restrictions tool, which has been renamed from "Windows Restrictions." Customers with Active Directory domains can also now apply the toolkit's user restrictions to domain accounts with a Group Policy template.

In addition, many international issues have been resolved and the user interface of the toolkit was improved based on usability feedback, Microsoft says.

While Autoruns may not be the most popular startup manager available for Windows, it is without the shadow of a doubt the one a complete package.

It enables you to go through all startup items of the system to assess and change them. Where most startup managers limit items to programs and sometimes services, Autoruns includes dynamic link libraries, drivers, network providers and a whole host of other items in its interface.

Autoruns 13 has just been released and with it comes integration of the online virus scanning service Virustotal.

If you follow Sysinternals tools updates you know that Autoruns is not the first program to get the integration. The process managerProcess Explorer supports it as well for example.

You need to enable the scanning before it becomes available. This is done with a click on Options > Scan Options, and the checking of "Check".

You are asked to read the Virustotal Terms of Service which are loaded in the default web browser automatically.

If left at that, only hashes of files found on the local system are submitted to Virustotal. While that ensures that no files get uploaded to the service, it means that you won't get results for some files.

To be precise, you won't get a rating for any file unknown to Virustotal.

You can change that behavior by enabling the submit unknown images option on the scan options.

Autoruns will submit the file hash first but if Virustotal returns an unknown, the file itself... Read more

The popular memory test program MemTest86 has been updated to version 6.0 yesterday. The new version introduces several new features and many changes of which the most important one is support for DDR4 RAM.

Support includes DDR4 RAM hardware as well as retrieval and reporting of DDR4-specific details

The new version of MemTest86 works like the old in many regards. It is still provided as a standalone disk image that you need to copy to CD, DVD, USB Flash drive or other removable media that you can boot the computer from.

It displays an options screen during boot that you can use to run various memory related tests. All versions of Memtest86 5 and later support dual-booting which refers to booting a version of the program compatible with UEFI or BIOS.

If you have downloaded the latest ISO image of the memory test program and run it on a machine not supporting UEFI, you will notice that MemTest86 4.3.7 is offered as an option instead of the more recent MemTest86 4.0 that was released yesterday.

Both versions will run a test automatically on start automatically. You can open the start menu in version 6.0 which displays various information about the computer and test configuration options.

From here it is also possible to configure and run the new RAM Benchmark option with options to write the data to a file (only if writable space is available).

Another new feature is the so-called Hammer Test which you find listed in the test selection menu. It has been specifically de... Read more

Intel Corp. Tuesday posted a statement on its web-site for hardware designers claiming that this October the firm would roll-out new revisions of its dual-core Intel Pentium D and Intel Pentium Extreme Edition microprocessors. The chipmaker remained tight-lipped over changes in the chips.

Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 840 and Intel Pentium D processors 840, 830, 820, will undergo a number of changes for the A0 to the B0 core processor stepping change, including CPUID change from F44 to F47. The B0 stepping is pin compatible with A0, but new S-Specs will be introduced for converting products.

Intel does not note any changes it will perform to the processors originally code-named Smithfield, but advises its customers to refer to electrical, mechanical, and thermal specifications (EMTS) of the new processors for specifications update, which may indicate that electrical and thermal specifications of the B0 chips may be at least slightly different compared to A0 central processing units (CPUs).

Intel’s first family of dual-core chips for desktops originally code-named Smithfield consists of Intel Pentium D 800-series as well as Intel Pentium Extreme Edition central processing units. Initial Intel Pentium D 800-series central processing units use 800MHz Quad Pumped Bus, integrate 2MB (1MB per core) L2 cache and utilize LGA775 form-factor.

There is a WIMBoot method that reduces usage significantly, but the instructions I've seen are for the Dell Venue 8 Pro, not the T100, although I'm not sure how different the two are.
You can remove the recovery partition, which takes up several GBs (dont do if you intend to do the WIMBoot procedure, might be a bit too advanced though, if its possible, it was a PITA for me) so I would do that as a quick and easy way.

SingularLabs has updated its optimization tool System Ninjato version 3.0 with the addition of a paid-for Pro version.
Both the free and Pro versions benefit from faster and more efficient junk scanning. In addition, the Startup Manager now uses an internal blacklist to highlight startup programs which should be removed.

The new System Ninja Pro version has been further optimized to minimize hassles and improve performance. There are no "offers" or advertising in the installer; new one-click optimization makes the program even easier to use, while command line switches allow you to automate specific operations.

System Ninja Pro also supports custom branding, while a new System Notes app allows you to enter notes for a particular PC, then recalls them automatically when you return at a later date.

System Ninja Pro is available to members of the SingularLabs "Pro Club". This costs $14.95 a year, but will allow you to install premium editions of other SingularLabs titles, and includes other benefits (enhanced documentation, private help desk, email support).

Still too expensive? We would tend to agree, but fortunately the free System Ninja is still available (and in a portable build, too). Go take a look.

Windows 10 Build 10036 introduces updating via P2P

P2P, or peer-to-peer networking, is usually associated with grabbing illicit copies of movies and albums using BitTorrent (or, of course, those endless Linux distros everyone is downloading).

In Windows 10 Build 10036, however, Microsoft is embracing the technology as an efficient means of delivering software updates to users.

For many years now, using Windows Update to download updates and patches for your operating system has meant downloading files directly from Microsoft's servers.
This new method takes the strain off Microsoft and makes it possible to download some or all of the available updates from other computers.

For businesses running large networks, this could dramatically reduce bandwidth usage. It means that updates could be downloaded on one computer/just a few - and others could grab the updates over the network rather than from the internet
It's a feature that will be of interest to home users with multiple computers, particularly when the time comes to download large updates; there will be no need to suck up bandwidth multiple times.

The feature goes further than this, though.As well as introducing the option to download updates from networked computers it also makes it possible to download from other computers online. This is something that will pay off when a service pack or other large update is released. It is at times like this that Microsoft's servers come in for a real hammering... Read more

In today's world privacy has become a premium and companies and governments are the ones in the hotseat thanks to Edward Snowden, WikiLeaks and others. People are searching out ways to avoid being tracked, a difficult task in this current society. AVG is the latest to offer a solution.

The security firm is announcing Crumble, a new extension for Chrome that promises you can "surf without surveillance". The app comes from the Innovation Labs and is still in beta at the moment, but users can start testing it out now.

It won't protect you from the NSA, but it will prevent the tracking of cookies. AVG claims "While this is not the first solution of its kind, we do think that our implementation makes Crumble the best solution against online cookie tracking".

I'm keeping a close eye on the development of the Vivaldi browser as it shows some promise especially when compared to other Chromium-based browsers.

Vivaldi Technologies releases snapshot builds of the technical preview of the browser regularly which introduce new features more often than not.

While it lacks certain features, the pace of development and the introduction of new features is refreshing.

The two most recent builds of the web browser are not exceptions to the rule as they introduce a whole batch of new or improved features.

Probably the biggest of them all is the automatic update feature on Windows. While limited to Windows currently, it get rids of the manual update process on the operating system. Not only did you have to install the update manually, you also had to visit a website regularly to find out about a new release in first place.

An option to check for new updates manually has been added to the help menu of the browser which you open with a click on the V-icon in the interface.

The browser's tab stacking feature, similar to the way classic Opera introduced it a long time ago, has received an improvement as well.

Tab stacking enables you to create a stack out of multiple open tabs by dragging them on top of each other. This stack uses the same space as a single tab which makes it ideal for situations where the tab bar overflows with open... Read more

source ( Avira Introduces SafeThings to Protect your Network's IOT Devices

As electronics manufacturers rush to develop new connected gadgets, invariably there is always one thing that falls short; security. We have seen time and time again that connected devices, even though fun and helpful, can have very serious security issues.

These issues could allow attackers to enlist your devices into performing DDOS attacks like Mirai and IoT_reaper, invade your privacy by connecting to your WiFi cameras, or brick your devices using BrickerBot.

To help with this Avira has just launched a new solution called SafeThings, which is a software solution targeted at ISPs and router manufacturers to help protect consumers from poorly secured IoT devices.

Avira wants to take over IoT security
The Avira's SafeThings solution is a software component that ISPs and router manufacturers can add to their CPE, or Customer-Premises Equipment, in order to monitor for abnormal behavior in IoT devices and block them if detected. This software is called SafeThings Sentinel and quietly runs in the background in order to discover devices, analyze packet headers, and enforce protection rules on the router.

The Sentinel software on the router would then transmit the gathered data back to Avira's SafeThings Protection Cloud, which uses AI to learn the normal activity of the devices on the network. If it detects any anomalies, it will transmit back instructions on ho... Read more

Toshiba America announced yesterday that it will be adding two models to its line of 2.5-inch, 5,400rpm hard drives for use in mobile PCs, all-in-ones, set-top boxes, and similar units.
The MK7559GSXP will have a capacity of 750GB, and is a standard 9.5mm, two-platter design. It has an areal density of 541.4Gb per square inch (GB/in2), which Toshiba says is the industry's highest; 8MB of buffer memory; and an estimated average seek time of 12ms. The MKxx59GSM series will also have an 8MB buffer, but its areal density of 482 GB/in2 will result in a slightly larger size (12.5mm) to accommodate its 750GB and 1TB storage capacities.
Both drives use Toshiba's "silent seek" technology and energy efficiency techniques to keep the drives both quiet and cheap to run. In addition, the two drives use the Advanced Sector Format technology that is rapidly being introduced into hard drives at all levels of manufacturer. The method uses 4KB per sector rather than the traditional size of only 512 bytes.
Toshiba expects the MKxx59GSM series and MK7559GSXP drives to ship to PC manufacturers and distributors within the next few months.
