Showa Denko 2.5-inch 250GB hard disk

Showa Denko, Japan has started commercial shipments of 2.5-inch hard disk media with storage capacity of 250 gigabytes per disk based on the perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) technology. The new 2.5-inch HD media have the world’s highest storage capacity for this size available on the market today. The new product is another fourth-generation PMR media offered by SDK following the 1.89-inch media launched in August.

As the new 2.5-inch 250 gigabyte HD media will contribute to the production of smaller hard disk drives (HDDs) with larger storage capacity, they will be used in small notebook PCs that deal with moving pictures
