Fujitsu MHW2 BJ Series
Fujitsu takes 7200RPM notebook drives to 160GB

Fujitsu has unveiled the world's first 160GB 7200RPM SATA hard disk drive (HDD) for notebook computers. The new MHW2160BJ notebook HDD will be available for high-performance notebooks beginning in May of this year.

The 2.5" HDD features a SATA 3.0Gb/s interface and has best-in-class acoustic levels of 2.5 bels at idle. The drive also sips power and only consumes 2.3 watts or less when reading/writing data.

2.5" notebook HDDs currently max out at 200GB and are only available with a spindle speed 4200RPM. Likewise, 7200RPM hard drives until now have topped out at 100GB. Fujitsu's new 160GB 7200RPM HDD strikes a nice balance between both extremes. Pricing, which is sure to be extravagant, has not yet been announced.

oh thank Fujitsu....

finally a 7200rpm hi-cap drive for my notebook... my virtual machines will be much happier now...

But...since its a Fujitsu drive, I'm curious how it stacks up against other drives like: 100gb @7200rpm, 160gb @5400rpm, etc etc...from hitachi, Toshiba and WD...

Great News! I've been waiting for high speed Fujitsu drives for a looong time.

From my own experience (and my friends), Fujitsu drives isn't much of a performer, but very reliable. I knocked one off a 3-foot counter while data transferring two years ago and its still working now!! It only became louder, and maybe a bit slower...
