Hitachi intros 2TB 7200 RPM drive, refreshes line

Hitachi logoHitachi GST is now shipping its first 2TB, 7,200 RPM desktop hard drive. The fourth-generation Deskstar 7K2000 uses the company's proprietary five-platter design with relaxed bit density and perpendicular magnetic recording technology. The company is also refreshing its K1000.C Deskstar line, with capacities ranging from 160GB to 1TB.

The 3GB/s SATA drive comes equipped with 32MB of cache and uses 10 percent less power when idle than previous generations. The company claims to be the first to produce a 2TB 7200 RPM drive, although Western Digital is already shipping a similar model for $300. Seagate early this year also introduced a 2TB desktop drive with 7,200 RPM spin speed.

Hitachi says its Deskstar 7K1000.C line now delivers "best-in-class" power efficiency at 4.4 watts or less when idle. All of the new drives are RoHS compliant and halogen-free.
