For many, the hard drive is the hub of a digital life. It’s a workhorse in your Mac or PC. It’s a place where you edit video, store digital memories, watch home videos and movies, and save your most important files. It houses your operating system, programs and games, and can even help you protect all of your digital content. With an award-winning reputation for delivering quality and reliability, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (Hitachi GST) today announced the industry’s highest capacity 4TB storage solutions – the Deskstar 5K4000 Internal Hard Drive Kit and the Touro Desk External Hard Drive – to help store and protect your growing digital life.
The 4TB Deskstar 5K4000 is a 3.5-inch hard drive with a 32MB cache buffer that provides an exceptional blend of power efficiency and performance, making it an ideal solution for power-friendly desktop computers. Providing 33 percent more capacity compared to current 3TB drives, the Deskstar 5K4000 drive features innovative CoolSpin technology, expanding this class of performance-optimized, energy-efficient drives that run cooler and require less power. The CoolSpin technology, along with other Hitachi power management techniques, gives the Deskstar 5K4000 up to a 28 percent idle power savings over Deskstar 7K3000 7,200 RPM drives and an idle acoustic level of only 2.5 bels.
