High-Capacity Storage Paves the Way for New Mobile Platforms

Travelstar 5K500.B is a 5400 RPM, 250GB/platter, 2.5-inch hard drive with capacities ranging from 120GB to 500GB. This drive is ideal for use in notebook PCs, external storage, gaming consoles, and other mobile applications. The 5K500.B demonstrates Hitachi's ecological leadership with its halogen-free production and focus on low power consumption, and carries the EcoTrac classification.

Hitachi offers optional hard drive-level encryption for increased data security and enhanced availability models to deliver high-capacity storage for non-stop environments. The Travelstar 5K500.B delivers the balance of capacity, ruggedness and low-power to meet the needs of consumers and commercial mobile users.

Encryption Option

Travelstar 5K500.B is available as a self-encrypting drive (SED) featuring Hitachi's Bulk Data Encryption. The SED encrypts in real time data using protected keys, providing users the highest level of data protection available. It also speeds and simplifies drive re-purposing. By deleting the encryption key, the data on the drive is rendered unreadable, thereby eliminating the need for time-consuming data-overwrite to wipe the drive.

Enhanced Availability (EA) for 24/7 Access to Data

Hitachi provides enhanced availability models that allow the Travelstar 5K500.B to deliver 24x7 access to data for data-intensive applications requiring round-the-clock operation. The 5K500.B provides high capacity, durability and low power utilization on a proven platform for quality and reliability. EA models support the stringent demands of "always-on" applications in lower-transaction environments.

Hitachi Quality and Service

All Hitachi hard drives are designed to the highest quality standards with field-proven components. They are backed by Hitachi's worldwide technical support and integration services, enabling customers around the globe to bring their products to market quickly.

*One GB is equal to one billion bytes when referring to hard drive capacity. Accessible capacity will vary according to operating environment and formatting.
