Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 B

Hitachi this morning touted its eco-friendliness and launched the Deskstar 7K1000.B. The disk holds the same 1TB as the earlier, original 7K1000 but demands 43 percent less power when idle, letting users upgrade without worrying that the drive will consume more energy just through its presence. The disk is also potentially more secure with the option of Bulk Data Encryption to lock data through hardware rather than depending on software.

The disk connects through Serial ATA II and should be available in July for an unknown price along with the similarly new E7K1000, a drive meant for businesses and other users who need always-on but low intensity storage with an estimated 1.2 million hours between breakdowns. Both drives should be available separately as well as part of complete systems.
