Slim, 2.5-inch, 5-mm drives offer solid state hybrid drive technology.

WD is shipping what it asserts are the world's first ultra-slim 2.5-inch, 5 mm hard drives and solid state hybrid drives (SSHD). which are designed for integration into the slimmest devices and space-constrained computing environments. With 500 GB of storage capacity and models with high performance-enabling solid state hybrid drive technology, this slim product line helps to address the tradeoffs system designers often make between capacity, physical size and performance. This ultra-slim form factor reduces weight by up to 36 percent compared with a standard 9.5 mm drive, according to the company. Additional features include desirable acoustics and shock--operation and non-operation shock specifications with 400 G and 1000G, respectively: edge card technology; and a small form factor SFF-8784 edge connector which receives power from and interfaces with the host I/O bus via the SATA interface connector SFF-8784.
