I realize the external size for the 3.5 format is 5.8x4x1".

 

Does ANYONE make one in the 3.5 format LESS than the 1" height?

In the time since I've been reviewing drives and before, I've never come across a 3.5" HDD that had a smaller than 1" height. 

 

What is the goal with this? The only thing possible if it did exist (doesn't) would be a single platter drive, which in performance terms wouldn't match up in performance to a 2.5" HDD.

That's what I thought. I figured most Forum members reading the question were just getting a good chuckle..."Look here Jimmy, this idiot is looking for a 3.5HDD that's NOT even a 3.5 HDD!"

But, I had to ask.

 

I'll be going with the 2.5" format to make things fit.

 

(Playing around with a LianLi PC-Q02 case.)

 

Thank you for terminating my fruitless Google search for something that doesn't exist.

What about the Seagate ST1000DM003?  Good performance - less than 1"
