Seagate has just announced that its Samsung HDD division will be shipping the 2.5-inch Spinpoint M9T. It measures only 9.5mm thick, making it the world's thinnest 2TB HDD in the market at the moment. The Spinpoint M9T will also come in 1.5TB variants. The tiny HDD  was engineered to give manufacturers a thin, but high capacity storage solution for use in small form-factor devices like external storage, notebooks, small desktops and even gaming consoles.

The HDDs have a SATA 6GB/s interface, and microactuation for fast and consistent performance, while its NoiseGuard, and SilentSeek technologies ensure that the HDDs operate extremely quietly. The Spinpoint M9T HDD is already available in the Samsung portable product line (including the M3 Portable and P3 Portable external HDDs), and select partners. 

“The M9T combines the highest areal density shipping in a single storage device with an innovative design that fits into mainstream notebook applications. While other 2TB are solutions on the market are 15 mm thick, the vast majority of mobile devices are designed to use a 9.5 mm drive; with the M9T, those devices can now have 2TB of storage, enabling a richer computing experience,” said Dave Frankovich, senior product line manager, Samsung HDD.
