Hitachi spins up fastest encrypted laptop drive

The essential guide to IT transformation

Hitachi's Global Storage team have begun spinning what they claim is the world's fastest notebook hard drive with on-board automatic data encryption technology. The Travelstar 7K200 rotates at a desktop-level 7,200rpm.

Hitachi Global Storage Technologies' 7K200 2.5in HDD

The 2.5in drive is available in capacities ranging from 120GB to 200GB. It connects across a 1.5Gbps or a 3Gbps SATA bus.

Hitachi said it's also offering an encryption-free version. It claimed both versions consume the same amount of power and make as little noise as a slower 5,400rpm drive - the type of hard disk most commonly found in notebooks.

The Travelstar 7K200 will be available to buy this summer for around $249.
