New Toshiba 400GB 2.5” HDD Aims for Sound of Silence

Toshiba MK4058GSX 400GB 2.5" Hard Disk Drive

Toshiba is prepping a new line-up of over-achieving 2.5-inch hard disk drives, including the MK4058GSX model which is said to be quieter and more efficient than their current MK3252GSX flagship.

The new model cuts acoustic noise by 2 decibels during data seeks, according to Toshiba, making operation almost inaudible. The company says the new 400GB drive is ideally suited for noise-free playback of movies and music on notebook PCs and digital products.

Mass production of the Toshiba 400GB MK4058GSX will begin in September, targeting notebook PC and consumer electronic applications.
