The Deskstar P7K500 hard drive provides an exceptional blend of power efficiency and performance making it an ideal solution for consumer and enterprise power-friendly PCs.

Power efficiency helps manufacturers deliver ENERGY STAR 4.0 compliant systems
The ENERGY STAR 4.0 specifications are recognized around the world as a way of identifying energy-efficient PCs and other office equipment.

PCs that meet the ENERGY STAR 4.0 criteria are expected to become increasingly required by government agencies, corporations and consumers.

Some corporations are choosing to purchase ENERGY STAR PCs as part of their green initiatives.

The Deskstar P7K500 hard drive delivers industry-leading low-power consumption – up to 40 percent operational power savings over previous generation products – contributing to a reduction in overall system power requirements which helps PC manufacturers achieve ENERGY STAR ratings.

Additionally, less power required by the hard drive means more power budget available in an ENERGY STAR PC for additional features and functions.

Featuring a choice of Parallel ATA or Serial SATA interface options to meet the needs of many design configurations, the Deskstar P7K500 is also built using the industry's most reliable perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) techniques to maximize capacity, performance and field reliability.

Hitachi drives are backed by an array of technical support and services, which may include customer and integration assistance. Hitachi is dedicated to providing a breadth of hard disk drive solutions to satisfy all of today's demanding computing needs.

The drive is on sale at Aria for only £35.19 excluding delivery.
