World's First 2.5'' Half-terabyte Mobile HDD, 22X DVD Burner Unleashed by Samsung

Samsung's Spinpoint M6 is the world's first 2.5-inch, 500GB HDD. Standing in at 9.5mm tall, the M6 will easily fit most existing laptop hard drive bays. For those of you worried about sloth like performance, the Spinpoint M6 has a 5400rpm spindle speed, an 8MB cache, as well as a 3.0Gbps SATA interface. A Free-Fall Sensor can be added as an optional extra. Not content with breaking the world record for the HDD with the smallest size / biggest capacity, Samsung are also introducing the industry's fastest DVD burner.

Damn, those are some impressive specs there. Quick question, does anyone know if this HDD will be compatible with the PS3 ?

Xemnas3972d ago

Yeah i think every 2.5' HDD works on it

rofldings3972d ago

Yea, it's compatible with the PS3.

decapitator3972d ago

Aight. Thanks guys. I will be picking it up when it available to the masses.

Mikey_Gee3972d ago (Edited 3972d ago )

How do you know for sure ??

Do you have one of these new 2.5" drives and have seen it working and running ??

gambare3972d ago

The type of I/O of this HDD is compatible with the PS3, so.... 500gig PS3 upgrade on the horizont.

If its's SATA 2.5" and no thicker than 9.5mm it will fit
inside and work with a PS3!!!!!!

It's 2.5" so I'm guessing it is.

Another reason why I would much rather stay away from Microsofts XBox 360. Everyone already knows about their overpriced hard drives, and I'm sure that the bulk of us (namely 360 owners) would rather use the default HDD (unless you own a core, good luck). We'd have to dish out $100 for 20GB of space...ouch.

The PS3 serves the most flexible and cost effective means of upgrading your storage, and that is the ability to include a 2.5" HDD into your PS3. As of today, PS3 users can enjoy the luxury of upgrading their HDD without worrying to pay $5 a Gig like the 360 HDD, and include into their PS3, 500GB of storage.

Oh, and yeah. PS3 future proof? Bring on Digital Distribution. 120GB can't possibly suffice for those movie junkies out there.

I am so happy that this HDD is fully compatible with PS3.

PS3 is the only next gen console that allows HDD like this one to fit into it

Thanks SONY for giving me the best console and the best multimedia kit

Now I am just waiting for it to show up in someone's inventory so I can buy it and pull my 320 from my PS3, pop that in an external case and then have a whopping 820 for my PS3.

I would slap that into my PS3. Home needs to be released along with Playtv. U.S has a decent amount of over the air digital stations already so Playtv can be used. Especially next year. More hdd space is welcomed.
