Hitachi 2TB HDD 7200 RPM Launched

hitachi-7k2000Hitachi have managed to create the worlds only 7200RPM 2TB hard drive. That’s quite an accomplishment. The key here is not only the massive amount of storage speed, but more so the speed that the drive spins. With it spinning 7200 times a minute it allows for faster read and write access than the other similar drives which only reach either 5400 or 5900 RPM.

The drive is named the 7K2000 and is shipping today to suppliers. Expect to see them available online this week. For the majority of us who probably wont need or buy a 2TB drive just yet there is good news. When larger drives come out it tends to drop the price of the smaller drives.
