Hitachi Ships Perpendicular HDD

Hitachi announced today that it has begun shipping the 160GB Travelstar 5K160, which features perpendicular recording technology. Available in 40GB -160GB capacities, this 5400rpm notebook drive offers 8MB cache memory, 5.5ms latency, and 11ms average seek time. The 5K160 goes on sale this summer (US) with prices starting at $265.

HGST dubbed the product “the drive of steel”, thanks to its reliability and stability – as measured in the company’s own tests, of course. The company claimed the drive exhibited as twofold improvement in sensitivity and precision when it came to reading data.
