Hitachi Ultrastar 15K73 73.9GB Hard Drive

The Hitachi Ultrastar 15K73 is the 3rd generation of 15,000 RPM enterprise-class hard drives from Hitachi. Leveraging award-winning technologies that have generated proven quality and high-performance, the Ultrastar 15K73 incorporates Fluid Dynamic Bearing motors (FDB) to contribute to increased capacity by enabling high-track density through a more precise position of the head. AFC Media, also known as "pixie dust", is an industry-first in 15 000 RPM enterprise-class hard drives, enabling higher areal densities by improving thermal stability, which in turn, maintains data integrity. Designed for both high-performance and high-reliability, the Ultrastar 15K73 was developed with powerful processors and read-write channels, advanced servo controls to improve seek and settle times, and overall improved mechanical stability to excel in today's demanding data-processing environments. In order to ensure data-protection, the Ultrastar 15K73 incorporates advanced reporting tools such as Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) to signal potential drive problems. Reliability is enhanced with load/unload technology and glass-substrate disks which provide a robust solution and high rotations speeds.
