For the most part Hitachi's new 7K500 looks like a standard 2.5" hard drive. With all of the real action happening on the inside there really isn't too much to show in the external shots.

All of the components are tucked away on the other side of the PCB, so there isn't a whole lot to see here either.

Hitachi used the standard mounting locations for the drive, so installing the 7K500 in your notebook will be easy.

Standard SATA power and data connectors are where they should be, making the drive compatible with just about every notebook and external drive enclosure on the market.
