Hitachi with 500 GB hard drives in 2.5-inch format

With the 5K500 and the E5K500 , electronics manufacturer Hitachi recently announced two 2.5-inch, 500 GB hard drives. Instead of a brand new technology, the two models simply have a different packaging system.

Not a greater density, but the simple stacking of plates leads to the capacity of the two new models. The disadvantage of this construction is quickly identified: Due to the height, neither the 5K500 nor the E5K500 can be installed in ultra-compact notebooks. This fact does not give anyone a headache at Hitachi, since both models are intended to be installed in larger OEM systems anyway.
