Travelstar 5K1000 is a 5400 RPM, 500GB/platter, 2.5-inch hard drive available in 640GB, 750GB and 1TB models. This standard 9.5mm, two-disk design, intended for use in notebook PCs, external storage, gaming consoles and other mobile applications, leverages Advanced Format, which increases the physical sector size on hard drives from 512 bytes to 4096 (4K) bytes to increase drive capacities and improve error correction capabilities. The Travelstar 5K1000 is the first 1TB 2.5-inch HDD with a 6Gb/s SATA interface and delivers best-of-breed 5400 RPM performance in PCMark 7 and PCMark Vantage testing. The 5K1000 continues to demonstrate Hitachi's ecological leadership with its halogen-free design and power-efficient operation, and carries the EcoTrac classification. Travelstar 5K1000 delivers the highest mobile capacity with excellent performance to meet the needs of consumers and commercial users in an eco-friendly, rugged design.
Travelstar 5K1000 is the seventh generation self-encrypting drive (SED) to feature Hitachi's bulk data encryption. The SED encrypts data using protected keys in real time, providing users the highest level of data protection available. It also speeds and simplifies drive re-purposing. By deleting the encryption key, the data on the drive is rendered unreadable, thereby eliminating the need for time-consuming data-overwrite.
