The Deskstar 5K3000 hard drive provides an enormous capacity and features innovative CoolSpin technology to deliver a greater level of power efficiency and quiet operation for energy-conscious, environmentally-friendly computers. Key to CoolSpin technology is an optimization of motor speed to provide an ideal balance of performance, power utilization and acoustics. The CoolSpin technology, along with other Hitachi power management techniques, gives the Deskstar 5K3000 its 29% power savings over the Deskstar 7K3000. The latest SATA III interface delivers noticeable data transfer boost of up to 2x the speed of SATA Revision II, reaching the speed of 6Gbps.
- Power efficient for cooler operation and longer lifeCoolSpin and HiVERT technologies combine to create this new class of hard drive that delivers excellent power utilization and thermal emissions. HiVERT technology helps efficiently manage power consumption. These innovations, along with eighth-generation Advanced Power Management, make the Deskstar 5K3000 the ideal choice for energy-efficient PCs that run cooler, require less power and last longer.
- SATA III InterfaceThe industry leading SATA Revision 3.0 compliant SATA ports provides up to 6Gb/s data transfer rates to reduce system bottleneck and improve performance and efficiency.
- Innovation for a more sustainable environmentThe Deskstar 5K3000 demonstrates Hitachi ecological leadership with its halogen-free design and power-efficient operation. Both of these features helped qualify the drive for the Hitachi EcoTrac classification, which identifies products that minimize environmental impact in the areas of product design, manufacturing, operation and disposal.
