Seagate Momentus 7200.2 Laptop Hard Drive

Laptop Storage:

In the market of mobile storage hard drives there are several manufacturers which provide drives which end up in laptops world wide. These include; Fujitsu, Western Digital, Seagate, Hitachi, and Samsung among others. Today we will be taking a look at Seagate's Momentus hard drive which is their line of 2.5 inch laptop hard drives. Interestingly enough Seagate actually left the laptop hard drive market only to re-enter the market later. A few quick facts about Seagate:

  • In 1980 Seagate built the first 5.25-inch hard drive
  • In 2004 Seagate extended their hard drive warrenty to 5 years against the industry standard of 3 years
  • In 2006 Seagate released the first consumer based hard drive to utilize perpendicular recording
  • In 2006 Seagate acquired Maxtor

Traditionally it would seem by looking at the company history that Seagate is an industry leader and a true innovator of storage technologies. Their products are favored by a massive number of people and vendors worldwide which is probably due in part to their world class warrenty and low failure rate.

Mobile Performance:

Laptops will play a critical role for computing in the next few years as we see the role of desktops diminishing and taking a secondary or backup role to the mobile computing platform. To this end storage capacity and quick file access is a key component. Of course the CPU plays a role as does the GPU but the demand for storage capacity has been in constant increase whereas the demand and need of other factors has always been in flux. The Momentus hard drive we are taking a look at has several key features which Seagate expects will boost performance and demand of this drive. Let's take a look.
