Hitachi GST Travelstar 1TB 2.5 7200RPM Hard Drive
Hitachi GST or HGST, formerly known as simply Hitachi before being bought out by Western Digital, offers up perhaps the very best 2.5-inch laptop hard drive designed with high capacities in mind. The most recent innovation in laptop drive design is that we've finally broken the 1TB barrier, which is impressive considering how many laptop drives were only 500GB or 300GB in size just a few years ago. The Hitachi GST Travelstar series offers up one such impressive 1TB drive in the 2.5-inch form factor, matching its capacity with a high speed 7200RPM drive and SATA 6Gbps connectivity. HGST also offers with the Travelstar a modest 3-year warranty, which is pretty standard for most drives. Still, it's value in capacity, high RPM, and fair price make the Hitachi GST the best among high-capacity drives in the 2.5-inch form factor.
