Fujitsu 2.5" Serial ATA drives in April

— 3:56 AM on January 5, 2004

The Inquirer tipped me off that Fujitsu's 2.5" Serial ATA hard drives will ship in at the end of April. The tiny drives spin at 5,400RPM, come with 8MB of cache, and even have their own native command queuing scheme to improve performance.

Fujitsu's 2.5" drives are really meant for notebooks, but their diminutive footprint also makes them tempting for small form factor PCs. Last year, Lost Circuits' Michael Schuette built a four-drive RAID 0 array into one of Shuttle's XPC cubes using similar Fujitsu notebook drives and only two internal 3.5" drive bays. Excessive? Perhaps, but it's still pretty cool.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
