Following the recent release of 500GB 2.5-inch drives from Seagate and Fujitsu, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies has announced its newest addition to the Travelstar lineup, the 2.5-inch Travelstar 5K500.B drive.

Available in 120, 160, 250, 320, 400 and 500GB capacities, the new Travelstar 5K500.B features a SATA 3.0Gbps interface, an 8MB buffer, average seek time of 12ms and it spins at 5400RPM. The drive will feature an optional Bulk Data Encryption (BDE) and will also be available as an enhanced-availability (EA) version, named E5K500.B, which is designed for 24x7 operation.
