The 2.5-inch CinemaStar C5K750 Family from Hitachi

Hitachi CinemaStar C5K750 Hard Drive

Designed for manufacturers who wish to offer video recording and playback features in small form factor devices such as hard drive-embedded TVs and DVRs, the Hitachi‘s 2.5-inch CinemaStar C5K750 family supports multi-tuner HD streaming requirements. The C5K750 drives are Hitachi’s first CE drives in the market with Advanced Format, which increases the physical sector size on hard drives from 512 bytes to 4096 (4K) bytes. With its reduced size, 0.5 watts (W) low power idle, 1.5W power during read/write operations, and barely audible 2.3 idle bels, consumers can enjoy smaller, quieter and more power efficient DVR solutions in their bedroom or living room with enough capacity to store 187 HD videos or television shows2.
