Hitachi rolls out 500GB notebook HDD with encryption

Posted on Wednesday, November 12 2008 @ 02:20:10 CET by

Hitachi released the Travelstar 5K500.B, a new 2.5" 5400RPM hard drive with a capacity of 500GB. The drive features optional Bulk Data Encryption (BDE) for hard-drive-level data security and consumes just 1.4W during read/write operations. It will be available in December.
The drive has earned the new Hitachi EcoTrac classification, used to describe products that minimize environmental impact in the areas of product design, manufacturing, operation and disposal.

The Travelstar 5K500.B, Hitachi’s second 500GB mobile drive, uses the industry’s latest 250GB-per-platter technology to deliver a half terabyte (500GB) of capacity in an industry-standard 9.5mm mobile form factor. Since entering the market in 1991, Hitachi has led innovations in the 2.5 inch segment across every measurable category: areal density, performance, power management, acoustics, shock tolerance, reliability and breadth of product options.

“We continue to see an increased demand for more efficient notebook computers,” said Brendan Collins, vice president, Product Marketing, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies. “As interest grows, customers are asking us for hard drives that require less power, provide more data security, have great performance and are environmentally friendly. Hitachi Travelstar drives meet all of these customer demands and more, which is precisely why they continue to be the most popular 2.5-inch hard drives on the market today.”
