The Travelstar 7K1000 fits into the market, just as storage technology is about to make a big change switching to Hybrid NAND caching drives. Though we must not forget that not every drive is intended to be stuffed into a space restricted Ultrabook. Drives like the Hitachi Travelstar will find a home in standard notebooks, HTPC systems and even full desktop PC's, just for its space saving and low power design. If I'm honest, why would you want a full size 3.5" drive when the HGST 7K1000 offers the same capacity and comparable performance in a small form factor?
The Travelstar is packed with technology, some of which we touched on in the introduction, such as Advanced Format and the SATA 6Gb/s interface. Another technology hidden inside the 7K1000 is TrueTrack Servo technology, this allows HGST to offer greater robustness against errors caused by vibrations or even disk shifting. The end result of a technology like this allows for greater integrity of users data whether it be in a single or multiple drive environment.
The HGST 7K1000 is the last of a dying breed. It encompasses innovations of the last 50 years in hard drive technology, all rolled up into one complete drive.
So, if you are in the market for good capacity for that next HTPC build, or maybe you just want to upgrade the drive in your notebook, at $89.99 the HGST Travelstar 7K1000 is one for the shortlist.
