SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Fujitsu Computer Products of
America, Inc., one of the world's leading suppliers of innovative computer
products including hard disk drives, peripherals and biometric security
solutions, today announced as part of a coordinated global launch the
MHX2300BT series of mobile hard disk drives (HDDs). The newest Fujitsu
products feature impressive storage capacities of 250GB and 300GB, the
first 2.5" PMR hard disk drives in the industry to attain these high levels
of capacity. The MHX2300BT series will begin shipping in the first quarter
Just last March, Fujitsu successfully launched the world's first 2.5"
Serial ATA (SATA) hard disk drive to feature up to 200GB of storage space.
Today, less than a year later, Fujitsu sets the standard even higher as it
introduces its latest ultra-high capacity mobile hard disk drive series.
Engineered using perpendicular magnetic recording technology, which is
essential to achieving the increased capacity per platter, the new small
form factor HDDs will address the growing demand for higher capacity
Additional benefits of the Fujitsu second generation PMR products
include best-in-class low power consumption at 1.6W as well as high shock
tolerance and near-silent operation. These qualities make the MHX2300BT
series highly desirable for audio/video (A/V) applications such as gaming,
video editing, audio recording and DVR functionality, as well as for the
high-end personal computing market.
"Due to our strong focus on innovation, Fujitsu remains at the
forefront in promoting advanced technologies such as perpendicular
recording and SATA, while at the same time continuing to meet the
industry's insatiable demand for high-capacity products," said Joel
Hagberg, vice president, marketing and business development, Fujitsu
Computer Products of America. "Our commitment to R&D has not only spurred
the development of the industry's first 2.5" 300GB capacity perpendicular
hard disk drive, but it will allow Fujitsu to continue to achieve these
aggressive milestones in advance of the rest of the industry."
