Industry-leading Capacity in a 7.0mm Mobile Form Factor

Travelstar Z5K1000 is the third generation 7.0mm, 5400 RPM, 2.5-inch hard drive from HGST, offering 750GB and 1TB capacities. This newest addition to the Travelstar family achieves the industry’s highest 7.0mm capacity through an innovative two-disk design in a form factor that typically accommodates only one disk. The Z5K1000 is designed to expand the storage capacity for slim-design notebook PCs, which has been limited to 500GB based on past one-disk design capacities. HGST 7.0mm drives may also be used as direct replacements for standard 9.5mm HDDs in notebook PCs, especially slim-design, and external storage with thinner and more robust device designs. This new drive also leverages Advanced Format, which increases the physical sector size on hard drives from 512byte to 4096(4K) bytes to increase drive capacities and improve error correction capabilities.

The Travelstar Z5K1000 continues to demonstrate HGST’s ecological leadership with its halogen-free design and power-efficient operation, and carries the EcoTrac classification. Travelstar Z5K1000 delivers the highest-available mobile capacity with excellent performance to meet the needs of consumers and commercial users in an eco-friendly, rugged design.

Encryption Option

Travelstar Z5K1000 is the seventh generation self-encrypting drive (SED) to feature HGST’s Bulk Data Encryption. The SED encrypts data using protected keys in real time, providing users with the highest level of data protection available. It also speeds and simplifies drive re-purposing. By deleting the encryption key, the data on the drive is rendered unreadable, thereby eliminating the need for time-consuming data-overwrite. For information about the SED models designed to the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) Opal Storage Security specification, please contact your HGST representative.
