Toshiba Mobile Thin MQ02ABF050H SSHD Hybrid Drives

Toshiba's 2.5" MQ02ABF Solid State Hybrid Drive (SSHD) combine SSD-like performance with large HDD capacities. The 7.0mm MQ02ABF050H provides 500GB storage capacity and squeezes 8GB of NAND storage in a lightweight design which makes them ideal for high performance and ultra thin notebooks, as well as slim line Desktops and gaming PCs. Media transfer rates reach 1288MBps while noise levels stay exceptionally low, maximum seek noise is just 21dB. All Toshiba SSHDs utilize self learning algorithms that enable the drive to identify the user's access patterns, allowing frequently used data to be stored in the NAND cache making it quickly accessible to the host. Likewise, data that is used less often is moved from the NAND flash to the HDD for long term storage. This self learning mechanism continues to develop throughout the lifespan of the drive, constantly improving the performance. Toshiba is the only storage vendor that designs and develops both HDD and NAND flash technology, the core components of hybrid drive technology ensuring the highest quality and innovation.
