Fujitsu last week released details of its new range of 2.5in format hard drives for laptop PCs.
The drives come in a range of capacities from 3.2Gb up to 10Gb, the largest being 12.5mm thick while the rest of the range measure 9.5mm.
All of the models use the industry standard ATA-4 interface and have a disk rotation speed of 4,200rpm, delivering an internal transfer rate of 15.8Mb/sec.
The new drives now feature a thicker and more rigid base casting which improves the drives, resistance to vibration damage - the most common cause of hard drive failure.
Other design improvements include the use of smaller and more sensitive read/write heads which can travel more closely to the disk surface and access data at higher speeds. The drives also use a feature called "repeatable run-out compensation" which performs self-diagnostics at power up and is able to compensate for errant mechanical movement.
The drives are available from Fujitsu immediately. Pricing was not available.
