Toshiba MK1234GAX: 120 GB UtraATA

Notebook Drives At Up To 160 GB Put Under the Microscope
By

Toshiba is a veteran when it comes to 5,400 RPM 2.5" hard drives. However, the firm did not deploy its 16 MB cache on the MK1234GAX, choosing to go for only 8 MB. The remaining technical data can be directly compared to the competitors; there is an UltraATA interface, fluid dynamic bearings, and two 60 GB platters.

Although this drive outperforms many of its 5,400 RPM competitors, it is defeated by Seagate's Momentus 5400.3.
