Fujitsu Limited today announced the release of its new series of MHZ2 BT 2.5″ hard disk drives with world-class capacity of up to 500 GB(1). Sales of the new series will begin at the end of May 2008.

The new series responds to the growing need for hard drives in the 2.5″ form factor that can handle high-volume storage for such products as digital video recorders and external hard drives.

The MHZ2 BT series requires only 1.8 W of power for read and write operations, ranking it among the most power-efficient drives in its class. The series is one of many new products announced as part of Fujitsu’s Green Policy Innovation program, unveiled in December 2007 to promote energy-efficient products and services as a way to help customers lower their ecological footprint.
