Seagate, one of the leaders in all things storage, has a pretty exciting announcement today for laptop and game console owners. The company unveiled its new 2.5" Spinpoint M9T from its Samsung HDD division, which is a 9.5mm thin 2TB hard drive. It's also available in a 1.5TB capacity, and either way you look at it, this is the thinnest hard drive in either size. Plenty of devices are set up for 9.5mm hard drives, but before you couldn't really go over 1TB. Now that's a thing of the past, and it's especially good for anyone looking to pick up a PlayStation 4 (or PS3) as it's limited to 9.5mm drives. Each Spintpoint M9T drive runs on the SATA 6Gbps interface and is packed with Seagate's NoiseGuard and SilentSeek technologies for the quietest operation possible.
The Samsung Spinpoint M9T is already available in the M3 and P3 external drives, and will be soon as a standalone. The 2TB is priced at $129, while the 1.5TB's price isn't known just yet.
