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