500GB Travelstar™ Z5K500 Hard Disk Drive

2.5-Inch | SATA 6.0Gb/s | 5400RPM | 8MB Cache
High-performance, high-capacity mobile storage for notebook PCs and other applications
  • Low Profile - 7mm thickness for slim designs
  • High Capacity - Up to 500GB
  • Quiet Operation - Enjoy a richer audio-listening experience
Travelstar Z5K500 is the second generation 7mm, 5400 RPM 2.5-inch hard drive from HGST, with capacities ranging from 250GB to 500GB. Advanced Format increases the physical sector size on HDDs from 512 bytes to 4,096 (4K) bytes, which improves drive capacities and error correction capabilities. The 500GB per platter, one-disk models are designed as a direct replacement for standard 9.5mm HDDs, for use in notebook PCs, external storage and gaming consoles, as well as new, thinner and more robust device designs. The Z5K500 carries the EcoTrac classification due to its low-power consumption and eco-friendly, halogen-free production. Travelstar Z5K500 delivers the right balance of capacity, power-management and design flexibility to meet the needs of mobile applications.
Data Security
Travelstar Z5K500 is the sixth generation self-encrypting drive (SED) to feature HGST's Bulk Data Encryption (BDE). The SED model encrypts data in real time using protected keys, providing users the highest level of data protection available. It also speeds and simplifies drive re-purposing. By deleting the encryption key, the data on the drive is rendered unreadable, thereby eliminating the need for time-consuming data-overwrite.
