Hitachi spins up DVR-friendly perpendicular HDD

Consumer electronics oriented

3 Big data security analytics techniques

IFA 06 Hitachi's Global Storage Technologies (HGST) subsidiary today launched its first consumer electronics-oriented hard drive that uses perpendicular recording techniques to boost its storage capacity to 160GB.

The 1.5Gbps SATA-connected CinemaStar C5K160 is based on HHGST's 2.5in notebook drive the Travelstar 5K160. It spins at 5,400rpm for a 13ms average seek time and a spin up time of 2.3s. It contains four read/write heads and two storage platters, and there's an 8MB cache on board too.

Pitched at DVRs, the drive is optimised for storing and reading video and audio streams, HGST said. The company also promised that the drive has "bedroom-quiet" acoustics.

HGST said it expects the CinemaStar C5K160 to become available in the first half of 2007. ®
