higher reliability? at 15000 RPMS?

OK, and then your laptop will run in battery mode for about half an hour. Server implementations? You’ve got to be kidding me, wtf uses 2.5 hard disks in servers? And why would have to do this? There’s no too much space in enterprise-level servers ? Or we are supposed to see laptop-based servers? lol :slight_smile:

It is in fact the goal by selling SAS drives, which CAN’T be read by a normal SATA controller. Now, i don’t know if you’ve ever been in a data center, but there are some places that would kill to use 2.5 instead of the big, space inneficient, 3.5… would be able to fit a lot more drives in one place. But higher reliability? Now that is something that must be verified… 7200rpm was something i was waiting for laptop for a long time tho and you can bet i will change my 5.4k rpm real fast as soon as i have the money

2.5" HDD are becoming very common in rack-able servers and blades. Don’t discount the fact that enterprises are pressed for space in the server rooms these days. Power and cooling are both serious considerations. Eventually these technologies will find their way down to consumers, however whenever you read 2.5", don’t assume laptop drives.
