Eurocom now supports the Hitachi Travel Star 5K1000 1 terabyte, SATA III (6Gb/s) Hard Disk Drive in its line of high-performance notebooks with RAID 0/1/5/10 support and up to four terabytes of storage in the EUROCOM Panther 3.0.
"At Eurocom, our customers are extremely excited to have the opportunity to have a single 1 TB storage drive with SATA III speed. The Hitachi Travel Star 5K1000 drive will greatly improve our overall storage offerings, next to our Solid State, Hybrid, mSATA and Hard Disk storage options," said Mark Bialic, Eurocom president.
The Hitachi Travel Star 5K1000 is the first 1 TB, 2.5 inch HDD with SATA III (6 Gb/s) interface. It utilizes Advanced Format technology to increase the capacity while improving error correction capabilities. It does so by using longer sectors that contain 4096 bytes, instead of 512 bytes.
The EUROCOM Panther Mobile Workstation supports four storage drives to offer mobile storage capacity of up to 4TB. The Panther has three standard storage drive bays; the fourth drive is housed in and takes the place of the optical drive bay. Eurocom offers customers the option of replacing the optical drive in their Eurocom notebook with a storage disk, to improve storage capacity, the company says.
