- Features transfer speeds of up to 300MB/second -


Tokyo, November 27, 2007 — Fujitsu Limited today announced the development of the MHZ2 BH series of 2.5" hard disk drives with a maximum capacity of 320 GB(1). Sales of the new series will begin in February 2008.

Featuring a storage capacity for 2.5" HDDs that is among the highest in the industry, the MHZ2 BH series delivers transfer speeds of up to 300MB per second. The series is designed primarily for use in compact desktop PCs, notebook PCs, and consumer electronics products, such as HDD recorders.

With the addition of this series to its line of HDDs, Fujitsu offers HDDs that optimally meet a range of customer needs.

Due to higher levels of desktop and notebook PC performance and expanding use of the Internet, demand has been increasing in recent years for HDDs that can accommodate heavier volumes of data, such as video and audio data. Moreover, customers are seeking greater energy efficiency, including limits to the amount of heat generated and reduced power consumption. Fujitsu developed the high-capacity MHZ2 BH series to meet these needs.

Supporting Serial ATA3.0Gb/s interface(2), the MHZ2 BH series delivers transfer speeds of up to 300MB per second. Moreover, capitalizing on the vast experience and innovative technology Fujitsu has accumulated through over 40 years of HDD development, the new series achieves the world's lowest levels of power consumption, operating at only 1.9 watts when reading or writing data.

The MHZ2 BH series also conforms to the RoHS Directive(3) limiting the use of certain hazardous substances.

Notes

320 GB:
1 gigabyte is equivalent to 1 billion bytes. Usable storage capacity is actually less than this figure. Actual storage capacity may vary depending on the environment and formatting of the customer's system.
Serial ATA3.0Gb/s inferface:
The Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) interface is one of the ATA standards for connecting a computer to a hard disk drive or other storage device. Each device has a 1:1 signal path to the host, transmitting data serially (one bit at a time). Therefore, high-speed data transfer without interference or noise is possible. SATA3.0GB/s is an extension of the SATA1.5GB/s standard and 3.0Gb/s is equivalent to transfer speed of 300MB per second.
RoHS Directive:
Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment: A directive issued by the European Union on February 13, 2003 that has set legal regulations for hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment to minimize risk to the environment and people in member countries. Based on the directive, as of July 1, 2006, the amount of lead, hexavalent chromium, mercury, cadmium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) is regulated in electrical and electronic equipment intended for Europe.
