Seagate Technology, a hard drive maker for Consumer Electronics, announced today it has further expanded its line of CE hard disc drives, unveiling a series of industry innovations including the first 2.5-inch hard drive designed specifically for consumer electronics devices, and to be featured in the Xbox 360. Seagate's new LD25 Series is the first consumer electronics hard drive in a compact, 2.5-inch form factor -- a concept for inside-the-box CE storage that enables smaller, simpler, cooler-running and more cost-effective game consoles, home entertainment devices and small footprint media PCs. Seagate's DynaPlay technology optimizes the drive for media streaming, power consumption and content security. LD25 Series makes it possible for game consoles like the Xbox 360 to expand their capabilities -- to enable them to expand and keep new soundtracks for games, to rip and store entire libraries of music and video, and to play back multimedia centralizing other entertainment functions with the gaming function. "The hard drive extends the gaming experience on Xbox 360," said Todd Holmdahl, corporate vice president, Xbox hardware. "From downloading trailers, new game levels, maps, weapons, vehicles, and more to supporting custom playlists in every game and storing video messages from friends, Seagate's LD25 Series 2.5-inch hard drive brings gaming and digital media together for the ultimate entertainment experience." Based on Seagate's industry-leading technology platforms, the LD25 Series offers 20GB, 30GB and 40GB capacities and both PATA and SATA interfaces, is designed specifically for use in installed home entertainment applications, and features Seagate's patented SoftSonic fluid dynamic bearing motors for super-quiet operation and high reliability. LD25 Series is shipping now to the Microsoft Xbox 360 and to other consumer electronics customers and manufacturers of small-footprint PCs.
