Any reason why WD doesn't do retail SSD, SSHD business? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thanks for that info. I know that I don't absolutely need a hybrid drive but, my main desire for one is the fact that people say the current Black's are noisy somewhat and I'm hoping the future SSHD's will be somewhat quieter. And yes, I do have a small ITX chassis.

You sound really assured; you must have some good contacts in the storage industry? thumb.gif

My uncle is CEO of WD and my cousin is on the board of directors for Seagate. tongue.gif

Nah, I've just accumulated information over time on the 'tubes: There's no reason why WD wouldn't target the desktop or more standard laptop market since this exists, and Toshiba has more typical 7mm SSHDs too. I actually found out about Toshiba's drive in another thread where there was a link to a video comparing boot times of the not-yet-released hybrid to 5400 and 7200 RPM HDDs and an SSD, which did not at all seem doctored despite being essentially an ad. They also showed the drive covers removed and all the components exposed to compare the heads' movements (naturally, the HDD moved a lot more) which I found interesting.
