The M80 SATA series and M80 series of 2.5-inch hard disk drives for notebook and enterprise computing applications utilize advanced perpendicular magnetic recording technology and feature optional free-fall sensors as well as a storage capacity of up to 160 GB. Targeted for mobile computing needs as well as enterprise applications, the drives feature 8 MB of onboard data cache and high performance 5,400 rpm spindle speed. The hard drives are said to provide cutting-edge shock protection capability through an advanced mechanical platform and able-bodied cover design engineered to minimize the intensity of external shock transmitted to the most critical components of the drive. The 2.5-inch hard drives are equipped with the company’s hybrid latch system that eliminates unpleasant rattling noises and significantly reduces the clicking noise generated when a drive moves its heads on and off the disk according to the operating modes. The drive uses a fluid dynamic bearing motor, which is said to achieve an industry-leading operating acoustic noise levels. Samsung Electronics Ltd.
