New 120GB Capacity Hard Disk Drives Offer Impressive Performance and High


Sep 20, 2005, 01:00 ET from Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc.

    SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Fujitsu Computer Products of
 America, Inc., one of the world's leading suppliers of hard disk drives and
 computer peripherals, today announced its next generation 2.5" MHV2120BH and
 MHV2120AH mobile hard disk drives, both featuring capacities of 120GB.  With
 this high capacity, Fujitsu mobile hard disk drives -- already known for their
 outstanding durability, low power consumption, and near-silent operation
  -- now offer customers this same level of performance for extremely data
 intensive applications.
     The Fujitsu MHV2120BH is among the industry's first 120GB Serial ATA
 (SATA) hard disk drives, and was built by leveraging the company's leadership
 in Serial hard disk drive technology.  The hard disk drive provides ample data
 storage for multimedia presentations, digital audio and video, and graphics
 applications, making it a natural choice for power users with intensive data
 requirements.  The Serial interface also utilizes Native Command Queuing
 (NCQ), an important feature that intelligently and simultaneously coordinates
 up to 32 instructions to be queued and reordered by the hard disk controller,
 contributing to a significant improvement in overall hard disk drive
     The MHV2120AH offers the same impressive capacity and specifications with
 a traditional Parallel ATA (PATA) interface.
     "ATA hard disk drives have a powerful impact on the storage market because
 their low cost, high reliability and impressive performance drive innovation
 in multiple markets such as Mobile PCs, near-line enterprise and consumer
 electronics," said Mike Chenery, vice president of advanced product
 engineering, Fujitsu Computer Products of America.  "Fujitsu research and
 development efforts are rooted in the fact that hard disk drives have to keep
 up as individual and organizational storage requirements increase, and that
 focus has been the genesis of our HDD products for over 35 years."
     The MHV2120BH and MHV2120AH feature high capacity, rugged construction,
 high endurance and low power consumption, making them well suited for a
 variety of storage applications, including blade servers, network routers and
 POS applications.  The hard disk drives provide industry-leading performance,
 critical for today's data intensive mobile and enterprise computing
 applications. Key specs include:
           --   Rotational Speed:  5400RPM
           --   Average Seek Time:  12 ms typ. (Read), 14 ms typ. (Write)
           --   Average Latency:  5.56 ms
           --   Read / Write Power Consumption:  1.9W typ.
           --   Idle Power Consumption:  0.6W typ
           --   Acoustic Noise:  2.6 bels (Typ.)
           --   Operating Shock:  2,940 m/s2 (300 G) 2ms
           --   Non-Operating Shock:  8,820 m/s2 (900 G) 1ms
           --   Operating Vibration:  9.8 m/s2 (1.0 G) (5 to 500 Hz)
           --   Non-operating Vibration:  49m/s2 (5.0 G) (5 to 500 Hz)
           --   Operating Altitude:  -300 to 3,000 m (-1,000 to 10,000 ft.)
           --   Non-operating Altitude:  -300 to 12,000m (-1,000 to 40,000 ft.)
     In accordance with the European Commission's 2002/95/EC directive for
 eliminating hazardous materials in the manufacturing of electronic equipment,
 the newest Fujitsu mobile hard disk drives are RoHS compliant.   Fujitsu is
 committed to RoHS compliance and will eliminate all hazardous substances,
 including substances restricted under the RoHS Directive and other global
 standards, by the end of its 2005 fiscal year.
     The MHV2120BH and MHV2120AH hard disk drives will be available through
 original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and distributors beginning 4CQ05.
