it is the same as the current generation. just another name change again.
i hope the price will stay the same. some ching said the price will go up ~$200, if the warranty is increased to 3 yrs. not from Toshiba but from distributor. the price may go up since it is a way to earn more income. think of it as an extended warranty. not all HDD will die between the 2nd to 3rd year.
