The S300 Surveillance Hard Drive series offer 24/7 reliability and high performance with large cache size up to 256MB. The S300 performs at up to 7200rpm with a maximum data transfer speed3 of 248 MB/s4. Additionally, the S300 comes with built-in RV sensors to help suppress vibrations in multi hard drive platforms. Available in up to 10TB capacities, the new surveillance hard drive can handle high workloads up to 180TB/year5 and supports surveillance network video recorders (sNVR), surveillance digital video recorders (sDVR), hybrid sDVR (analog and IP) and RAID storage arrays for surveillance.

The V300 Video Streaming Hard Drive series are designed for reliable video recording and playback, and offers built-in silent seek technology, which results in a quiet operation. The V300 low spin design reduces energy consumption by up to 25%6. Available in up to 3TB capacities, the V300 hard drive supports video editing systems, set-top-box (STB), digital video recorders (DVR) and network video recorders (NVR).

In addition to the new hard drive models, Toshiba introduces new color branding for each category in the consumer internal hard drive lineup. The new category colors will be displayed on the drive labels and retail shelf packaging to clearly communicate the hard drive category’s use case and device application. The S300 hard drive series comes in a green surveillance label, and the V300 hard drive series in a blue video streaming label. The consumer friendly, easy-to-identify color-coded drive labels and retail shelf packaging makes it easy for consumers to shop for the drive they need.

“Toshiba is refreshing the consumer hard drive branding to make internal hard drives more consumer friendly and easier to shop for the right application,” said Michael Cassidy, vice president, Consumer HDDs, Americas, Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. “By entering the Surveillance market with a robust lineup of high performance and high reliability hard drive models targeted for the consumer market, Toshiba is offering a drive for every storage application.”

Toshiba continues to expand product offerings with higher storage capacity and performance. The new S300 and V300 hard drives further illustrate Toshiba’s efforts to continue offering drives for every consumer storage application from PC, gaming, NAS, and now surveillance and video streaming.

1 Definition of capacity: Toshiba defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
2 Number of surveillance cameras support capability is defined by performance simulation with High Definition cameras at 10Mbit/s rate. Actual results may vary based on various factors, including the types of cameras installed, the system’s hardware and software capabilities, and the video compression technology used, as well as system variables such as resolution, frames per second, and other settings.
3 Read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.
4 This specification is for the S300 10TB model.
5 Workload is a measure of the data throughout of the year, and it is defined as the amount of data written, read or verified by commands from the host system.
6 25% energy consumption comparison is based on 2TB models of P300 and V300.
