Toshiba announced its latest 1.8-inch HDD called the MK2529GSG that has 250GB of storage space. The small HDDs are intended to be used in consumer electronics and PCs. Performance from the drives should be decent with a 5400-rpm rotation speed.

The drive uses the SATA 3 GB/s interface and features a free fall sensor to enhance shock protection. The areal density for the drive is 378.8 GB/in. Power consumption is low at 0.0016 watts-per-GB.

"Portable PCs continue to make the transition to the SATA interface," said John Rydning, research director at IDC. "IDC estimates that 84 percent of mobile HDD shipments in the second quarter of 2008 were SATA. Toshiba's implementation of SATA 3.0 GB/s for its new 1.8-inch HDD product line will facilitate adoption in a broad range of portable PC form factors."
