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.

While higher densities do help 5200 rpm drives, in real world testing, the 7200's are faster.

If you were to get both like this Fujitsu drive, higher density and 7200 rpm, then things are likely to get very fast. 160 and 200's in the 7200 rpm category are expected by the end of 2007. However, to counter that as much as 250 @ 5200 is expected in the same timeframe.
