The technical data of Toshiba's new drives does not appear very different from the UltraATA versions, with the exception of the interface information. The high capacity model (MK1032GSX) is equipped with a whopping 16 MB cache memory, intended to keep performance at the highest levels. Toshiba, by the way, was the first hard drive maker to introduce 16 MB buffers to the notebook drive space, back in 2002.
Offering 83 gigabits per square inch, Toshiba is at a nice level of storage density by today's standards. All the current drives come with fluid dynamic bearings (FDB), offering low noise operation and a rather long life cycle.
