Fujitsu will be releasing two new 500 GB 2.5″ hard disk which has got 5400RPM speeds. The new MJA2 BH series and MJA2 CH series will consume only 1.4W of power when recording data. Moreover these are the first Fujitsu’s halogen-free HDD models. I guess other companies should also manufacture HardDisks like this which are safe for the environment.
The MJA2 CH series is the world’s first 500 GB HDD equipped with 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption. This Harddisk can automatically encrypt the data as it is recorded. One more important feature is that all data stored on the HDD can be erased instantly, in less than a second, using the advanced secure erase feature. These features definitely help the enterprises to prevent data leaks when a PC is lost or stolen and also makes it simple to erase data during disposal.
Both the models come with the SATA interface and the data transfer rate is 300 MB/s. The average seek time is 12 ms while reading and 14 ms during writing. The shock resistance is 350G during operation and 900G in non-operating mode. Both models measure 9.5 x 70 x 100 mm, and weigh just 101 g.
