HGST Travelstar™ 5K1500
A 1.5TB, 5400 RPM, 2.5" battery-efficient hard drive equipped with a 6Gb/s SATA interface in a compact 9.5mm package.
Introducing the Travelstar™ 5K1500, a 5400 RPM, 500GB/platter, 2.5-inch hard drive that delivers a massive 1.5TB of storage capacity in an industry-standard 9.5mm design. The huge capacity yet compact size of the 5K1500 results in the highest storage density (MB/ mm3) of any hard drive today.
If you need to store tons of information but don’t have the space for a 3.5” hard drive, the HGST Travelstar is just what you are looking for. With its 2.5” form factor, the HGST Travelstar fits into laptops, desktops and external enclosures. It has 1.5TB of storage space, so it can easily handle extremely large files and massive amounts of data. The HGST Travelstar is especially useful for professionals, such as photographers and videographers looking to upgrade their laptop’s hard drive.
This newest addition to the Travelstar family achieves the industry’s highest 9.5mm capacity through an innovative three-disk design in a form factor that typically accommodates only two disks. The Travelstar 5K1500 is intended for use in Mac or PC laptops, all-in-one desktop PCs, external storage, gaming consoles, blade servers, network routers and video surveillance systems.
The Travelstar is HGST’s first hard drive to leverage Advanced Format, which increases the physical sector size on hard drives from 512 bytes to 4096 (4K) bytes, allowing increased drive capacities and improves error correction capabilities.
