Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed
Designed for optimal performance and high durability, the Toshiba MKxx61GSYN series of 7,200 RPM hard disk drives deliver 160 to 640GB* of storage capacity in the 2.5-inch form factor. The MKxx61GSYN family of Serial ATA drives offers extreme power efficiency and superior operating acoustics over 3.5-inch drives for today’s high-end notebook PCs, gaming laptops, and mobile workstations as well as Energy Star® all-in-one and slimline desktop PCs.
Toshiba couples greater power efficiency of the MKxx61GSYN drives with other environmentally-conscious solutions including RoHS-compliance and utilization of components that reduce PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and BFRs (brominated flame retardants) as well as meet halogen-free** standards.
An optional free-fall sensor responds to drop events and securely locks the recording heads in place off the media before system impact. This provides an additional level of ruggedness and durability to the MKxx61GSYN drives and is particularly suitable for mobile applications.

It's also very quiet for a 7200 rpm hdd.
During my usage the "loading..." screen took noticeably more time at 5400 RPM than it did with this hard disk at 7200 RPM (around 3-5 seconds).
I'd recommend this hard disk if you want to have a mildly fast hard drive but you are not ready to invest in a solid state hard disk drive.
Both the WD and this Toshiba are running at 7200 RPM, but Toshiba is extremely quiet, whereas WD was pretty noisy.
I could have went for a bigger size Seagate or WD hdd - 750GB or 1TB, but I wanted a reliable hard drive and Toshiba HDDs never disappointed me before.
So far I'm very pleased with this Toshiba 500GB HDD, works great.
Now it works great, slightly quicker than my old WD Scorpio Blue 500GB drive that was 5400 rpm.
There's the problem though, when I look in my About This Mac option, the Toshiba drive is mentioned as being 5400rpm.....did I get sent the wrong one or is the MacBook failing to recognise it?
It's a good drive but I'm confused!
This 5ooGB HDD is so tiny.
Was hoping it would be not too noisy, you know you get used to how your machine behaves.
Well this HDD is as good as silent. My Dell Studio sounds no different with this drive fitted. Fantastic.
I wonder how long 500GB will last me before 1TB seem inadequate?
