The Z5K500 is the top-end model in Hitachi's Travelstar series of ultra-compact 7mm-thick 2.5" internal hard drives. Designed for netbooks and ultraportables, the drive is the thinnest 500GB 2.5" drive presently available to OEMs. Models with 250GB and 320GB of space are also available. The 5400RPM hard drive cannot compete in speed with solid-state options, but it may offer greater value for manufacturers, with a lower cost per gigabyte. The Z5K500 is designed for quiet, energy-efficient operation, featuring a 1.8W read/write power consumption. It is the basis for Hitachi's G-Technology G-DRIVE Slim, an external hard drive. The Z7K320 is faster at 7200RPM but comes in a larger form factor.
