Fujitsu Fujitsu Worlds First 2.5 7,200 RPM 3.0 Gb/s SATA HDD

Fujitsu Limited today announced the development of the new MHW2 BJ series of
world’s first(*1) 7,200 rpm 2.5" hard disk drives (HDDs) with a serial ATA 3.0
Gb/s interface(*2). Featuring the world’s highest storage capacity of 160 GB(*3)
for a 7,200 rpm 2.5" HDD, the new series is targeted primarily at
high-performance notebook PCs. The new series will be available on global basis
at the end of May, 2007.

In addition to achieving the world’s leading storage capacity, MHW2160BJ is
capable of data transmission speeds at up to 300 MB/s, the fastest rate in the
industry. The series also features best-in-class acoustic noise level of 2.5
bels(*4) at idle, and low-power consumption, operating at 2.3 watts or less when
reading or writing data.

As the use of notebook PCs becomes even more popular, there is demand for
high reliability notebook PC HDDs that offer high-speed and high-capacity
performance on par with those used in desktops. The MHW2 BJ series meets this
demand with a speed of 7,200 rpm, the highest of any serial ATA 2.5" HDD. These
HDDs boast the high quality Fujitsu customers come to expect, and they can be
easily incorporated into high-performance notebook PCs and flat panel desktop
PCs, both of which are expected to gain popularity. They are also RoHS(*5)
compliant.
