Fujitsu Asia Unveils Latest 2.5-inch SATA Hard Disk Drives for ASEAN

60GB, 80GB and 120GB versions of MHW2BK series to be available beginning Q3 2007

Fujitsu Asia Pte Ltd.

Singapore, July 03, 2007

Leading regional IT and communications solutions provider Fujitsu Asia today announced the MHW2BK series of Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) hard disk drives (HDDs).

Engineered primarily for blade server, industrial, robotic, surveillance and telecommunications operations, the MHW2BK series of HDDs has been designed with a spindle speed of 7,200 revolutions per minute (rpm) and a maximum data rate of 3 gigabits per second (Gb/s).

The product line also incorporates features to minimise the adverse effects of rotational vibration (such as read or write failures) which may occur when multiple drives are mounted on a single chassis and rotated at high speeds, for increased operational stability.

The MHW2BK series includes three models with storage capacities of 60 gigabytes (GB)(*), 80 GB and 120 GB. The models also possess attributes found in earlier SATA HDDs by Fujitsu Asia, such as low power consumption and high shock tolerance.
