The “MQ01ACF” series is Toshiba’s first 7,278rpm, 2.5-inch product with a 7mm
height. The series offers two models: the “MQ01ACF050” with a recording
capacity of 500GB and the 320GB “MQ01ACF032”. A maximum internal transfer rate
of 1,850Mbit/s is realized by improvement to linear recording density and the
7,278rpm rotational speed. Implementation of the 6Gbit/s SATA interface also
boosts data transfer rates over those of current models.

The slim “MQ01ACF” series is suitable for laptops and ultra-thin notebooks,
especially for high-end PCs offering high speed data processing.

Notes: [1] One gigabyte (GB) = 1,000,000,000 (109) byte.
