Fujitsu announced the MHV2160BT, a 4200 RPM, 160GB 2.5" Serial ATA (SATA) hard disk drive, as part of a coordinated global launch.
Fujitsu developed the MHV2160BT to address growing demands for mobile hard disk drives with
the speed and capacity required for high-end audio/video computing. The new SATA hard disk
drive is expected to ship by the end of this year.
Following more than four years of SATA development on the 2.5" platform, the latest Fujitsu
mobile hard disk drive offers low power consumption, increased capacity, high shock
tolerance, and quiet operation. It also features a hardware accelerator that maximizes
Native Command Queuing (NCQ) performance, an important feature that enables the hard disk
drive controller to intelligently and simultaneously queue and reorder up to 32
instructions, resulting in a significant improvement in overall hard disk drive performance.

In addition, the Fujitsu MHV2160BT hard disk drive is RoHS compliant. RoHS is the European
Union's directive for eliminating certain hazardous materials in the manufacturing of
electrical and electronic equipment.
The Fujitsu MHV2160BT will be available through original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and
distributors in 4CQ05.
