250Gbyte MHY2250BH HDD series from Fujitsu

Fujitsu Hong Kong Ltd introduces the MHY2250BH series of 2.5-inch mobile hard disk drives (HDDs). The drive series contains up to 250Gbytes of storage capacity in a slim 9.5mm form factor, said to be the highest capacity for a 2.5-inch 5,400RPM HDD in the industry today.

The serial ATA (SATA) HDDs were developed for portable consumer electronics, which require reduced noise, vibration and power consumption. The MHY2250BH HDD series addresses the demands of the rapidly developing high-end A/V computing market, particularly in applications such as gaming, video editing, audio recording, DVR functionality and personal computing. Engineered using perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) technology, the new HDDs feature standby power consumption at 0.6W and near-silent operation.

Additional benefits of the two-platter MHY2250BH series include an idle acoustic noise level of 2.4bels, and low power consumption, operating at 1.6W or less when reading or writing data. The high-capacity SATA HDDs deliver high performance and reliability, making them suitable for notebook PC and portable video recorder users.

Key specifications of the device include an SATA 1.5Gb/s (Rev 2.5) interface and a maximum buffer-to-host transfer rate of 150MBps. It also offers read/write seek time of 12/14ms (typ.), track-to-track seek time of 1.5ms (typ.), best-in-class standby/sleep power consumption of 0.13W (typ.) and high operating shock tolerance of 325G (2ms).

The MHY2250BH series will begin shipping this second quarter, said Fujitsu.
