From the Manufacturer
The Deskstar 5K3000 hard drive provides an enormous capacity up to 3TB and features innovative CoolSpin technology to deliver a greater level of power efficiency and quiet operation for energy-conscious computers. Key to CoolSpin technology is an optimization of motor speed to provide an ideal balance of performance, power utilization and acoustics. The CoolSpin technology, along with other HGST power management techniques, gives the Deskstar 5K3000 its 29% power savings over the Deskstar 7K3000. This new drive is the first HGST CoolSpin hard drive with a 6Gb/s SATA interface. With low power, high capacity and cool operation, the 3.5-inch Deskstar 5K3000 allows manufacturers to leverage the benefits of the latest components and operating systems to deliver more systems.
Less Power, More Performance
The Deskstar 5K3000 hard drive is a 3.5-inch hard drive that provides an exceptional blend of power efficiency and performance, making it an ideal solution for power-friendly consumer and commercial desktop computers. This third-generation 500GB hard drive from HGST boosts media transfer rate performance by as much as 13% over its predecessor. Leveraging eighth-generation power management technology, as well as power-saving HiVERT innovations pioneered on the popular 2.5-inch line of notebook hard drives from HGST, this new desktop drive provides up to 29% idle power savings over the previous model to deliver best-in-class power management and thermal emissions.
Innovation for a More Sustainable Environment
The Deskstar 5K3000 demonstrates HGST's ecological leadership with its halogen-free design and power-efficient operation. Both these features helped qualify the drive for the HGST EcoTrac classification, which identifies products that minimize environmental impact in the areas of product design, manufacturing, operation and disposal.
Power Efficiency Supports ENERGY STAR 5.0
The ENERGY STAR 5.0 specifications released by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are recognized around the world as a way of identifying energy-efficient PCs and other computer equipment. PCs that meet the ENERGY STAR 5.0 criteria are expected to become increasingly popular with both corporations and consumers. Some corporations are choosing to purchase ENERGY STAR PCs as part of their "green" initiatives. The low power profile of the Deskstar 5K3000 hard drive enables a reduction in overall system power requirements, which helps PC manufacturers achieve ENERGY STAR ratings.
