Fujitsu 24/7 200GB Drive

Fujitsu's storage division today previewed the MHY2200BS, a new 2.5-inch hard drive created for environments where storage may have to operate 24 hours per day or in rough conditions. An anti-vibration system prevents the drive head and platters from falling out of sync from the shocks triggered by bumps and nearby equipment -- up to 325Gs of shock can be applied while the drive continues to run at its normal 5400RPM speed, Fujitsu says. Power use is also the best possible at just 0.6W while idle.

Perpendicular recording brings capacities as high as 200GB, though models also run as low as 40GB for less demanding users. All the drives fit into the standard SATA connector of most recent computers and are slated to arrive in August. Prices are unlisted and will vary based on individual resellers and PC builders, though a boxed retail kit is not expected to be an option.
