Product Description

Travelstar 5K160, Hitachi's first hard drive to use perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR), delivers superior technology and reliability. With capacities up to 160GB, industry-leading performance, low-power consumption and excellent shock resistance, Travelstar 5K160 has the key attributes to support the stringent demands of portable computing. Improved electronics design further reduces the power consumption of this 5400 RPM drive, which beats its industry-leading predecessor by 10%; the 5K160 also runs cooler than the competition. Hitachi has also implemented Thermal Fly-height Control (TFC) for improved error rates, and iridium-manganese-chromium (IrMnCr) read heads for improved reliability. Hitachi has done extensive testing to verify Travelstar 5K160's best-in-class standing, making it the 'Super-pendicular Drive.'
