WD sub Hitachi GST is showing a fast, high capacity pocket disk drive at CES that sets a new product benchmark: a G-DRIVE with a 7,200rpm, 1TB Travelstar drive inside it. This a brand new Travelstar drive. Mike Williams, the VP and general manager for G-Technology in the HGST Branded Business, said: "The new Travelstar drive is …
Sounds like a neat way to loose a crapload of data in one easy step :-|
Re: Deathstar revisited?

Hence the reference to Schroedinger...
And once more, loose != lose
so is it faster than Momentus XT ?
the article is sort of unclear, no link to the results so don't know if Momentus XT was among the drives tested, or if since it is a Hybrid drive Hitachi didn't test it because it's not a normal drive..
the article also doesn't indicate what rating the Hitachi drive achieved using this benchmark..would be helpful to know..
I don't see easily accessible public results for PC mark..
It's surprising to me how long Seagate has had the hybrid drive market for with no other competing products available. Though some ultrabook makers are pairing flash with spinning rust though they are in separate packages rather than integrated into the drive.
