Toshiba announces new hybrid hard drives

Looks to take on Seagate and others, but is it too little too late?

I've just seen a 120GB OCZ SSD on sale for ~40... after my experiences with the Momentus XT drives, I might take hybrid storage more seriously if they put a decent quantity of NAND cache onboard.

It would also help if they provided some way of saying "cache this folder, but not this one". It doesn't matter about caching music or video, but it does matter about caching files in the \Windows\ or \Program Files\ folders...

with the launch of the crucial v series i'd consider hybrid solutions dead.
