Toshiba has released a new family of advanced 3.5-inch HDD drives, which offer the user several terabytes of space. In total, the company has 12 drive models, four of which offer 3TB of space. Some models offer an interface 6Gb / s SATA, 64MB buffer and 7,200 rpm, while the other drives offer 32 MB buffer and a rotational speed of 5700 and 5940 rpm.
All new drives from Toshiba have the technology “Silent seek mode”, which reduces the noise level at 1dB and 2dB compared to the normal mode when working with two or three disks, respectively. This feature is ideal for listening to music with a reduction of noise in a quiet environment.
Toshiba says that the new drives are compatible with the Directive European Union RoHS*4 directive on the elimination of six hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
