Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., a supplier of innovative computer products including hard disk drives, peripherals and biometric security solutions, today announced the launch of its MHZ2 BH series mobile hard disk drive. Electrical power consumption is a major IT concern, where it is important for HDDs to use less power and generate less heat for the growing energy-conscious consumer, and still deliver optimum storage capacities.
The new Perpendicular Magnetic Recording drive series attains up to 320GB, the industry's highest capacity point for a 2.5" 5400RPM HDD, and with the SATA 3.0Gb/sec interface, delivers transfer speeds of up to 300MB per second. With the addition of this series to its line of HDDs, Fujitsu offers HDDs that optimally meet a range of customer needs.
Developed in response to the growing demand for higher capacity storage products required for notebook PCs, compact PCs, consumer electronics and power-conscious applications, the MHZ2 BH will be available to customers in the first quarter of 2008. Supporting Serial ATA3.0Gb/s interface, the MHZ2 BH series delivers transfer speeds of up to 300MB per second.
Utilizing the vast experience and innovative technology for HDDs developed over the past 40 years, Fujitsu enhances the 2.5" HDD line-up by introducing the new MHZ2 BH hard disk drive with best-in-class idle at 0.6W, and read/write power consumption of 1.9W. The 320GB 2.5" SATA drive is an ideal ecological solution for the growing demand of applications that require more capacity, performance, and reliability with less energy usage.
"The Fujitsu R&D team is dedicated to improving performance across the entire product line, and in light of many customers' green initiatives, we are excited to deliver mobile HDDs with best-in-class power consumption," said Joel Hagberg, vice president, marketing and business development, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. "The new MHZ2 BH series makes it possible for customers to build systems with industry-leading capacities, without sacrificing system performance, ensured reliability and energy conservation."
