released its GreenPower series hard drives in July, claiming reduced power consumption of as much as 40%. Now, Hitachi has announced its own line of hard drives which reduce power consumption, yet maintain the performance users expect from a high-end drive.
The DeskstarP7K500 drives have up to 250GB per platter, and are available in 250GB, 320GB, 400GB, and 500GB capacities. The Hitachi
drives listed above will all maintain 7200rpm.
