When the drive spin's down to save power, wouldn't it have a negative impact on performance when it's needed most? because the drive would need to spin back up?

I don't think there are any laptops that offer the SAS serial connection and I bet these things would give off too much heat as well.

Thank jeebus these are sata 3.0 drives. I would've been mad if they made sata II versions which could be used in my ps3 hehe because I already put a seagate momentusG in mine.

These are SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) drives and will not work on a SATA controller.

Now....SAS controllers can use SATA disks....but why would we want to do that now :)

Emergency/temporary use? At the very leasy it's still better than a swift kick in the nuts. :p

Don't SAS drives cost more than an equivalent capacity SSD which is faster, more durable and longer lasting?

Not a 9.5mm high drive. Nuff said for most of us, unfortunately.

2.5" SAS drives have been available at 10K and 15K RPM for years now. The actual news here is that now Toshiba is doing it. Yawn.

It's $600 US.dollars! Are you kidding Toshiba?! We can get a VelociRaptor with the same specs but double the Cache for less than half that price. Get with the times already!
