Toshiba Hard DiskQuite the sexy little beast isn’t she? Well, this little baby from Toshiba comes packed with good news. The very embodiment of a modern hard disk, this PMP-friendly hard drive measures just 1.8 inches and comes with Low-Insertion Force SATA connectors. If that’s not enough to satisfy your craving for awesome specs, the HDD also requires just 0.35 watts to operate at low power on idle and has a 16mb buffer. Ideal for portable devices such as tablets and media devices, this disk is said to be more robust and operate more quietly than its predecessors. Measuring at just 5 x 54 x 71 mm, it comes in denominations of 160GB, 200GB and 220GB.
