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
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.)
