Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation is adding 12TB and 14TB models to both its N300 NAS Hard Drive and X300 Performance Hard Drive series.

The new 12TB and 14TB models use a helium-sealed design, enabling the 3.5-inch mechanical
design to deliver increased storage density with a lower hard drive operating power profile. Toshiba
laser welding technology and hard drive case design keeps the helium securely sealed inside the drive enclosure.

The new 12TB and 14TB models operate at 7,200rpm and come with an ultra-high 256MB data
buffer. The N300 NAS and X300 models use Toshiba’s advanced Stable Platter Technology to
minimize vibrations by stabilizing the motor shaft at both ends for improved tracking accuracy
and maximum performance during reading and write operations.

The N300 NAS models include rotational vibration (RV) sensors and deliver sustained data
transfer speeds up to 260MB/s for 14TB or up to 253MB/s for 12TB. With support for up to
8 HDD multi-RAID systems, the new N300 models are highly scalable to the users’ NAS
configurations as their data storage needs evolve large amounts of data need to be efficiently
stored and accessed daily.

“The new drives deliver exceptional performance, storage, reliability and power efficiency, using
advanced technologies that will continue to increase capacity and keep Toshiba as an innovator
in the storage space,” said Takayoshi Tokushima, Senior Director of Storage Products Marketing
The group at Toshiba Electronic Components Taiwan Corporation.

The N300 NAS Hard Drive series is designed for use in the high-performance personal, home office
and small business network attached storage applications such as for scalable RAID systems. It is
optimized for the performance, reliability and endurance requirements of 24/7 operation
high-capacity storage and comes with a 3-year limited warranty.

The X300 Performance Hard Drive series delivers extreme performance and robust capacity for
creative and professional applications including graphic design, animation, photo and video
editing, and PC gaming. With up to 14TB, the new hard drives easily store and provide access to
even the fastest-growing gaming libraries.
