500GB Hitachi 0A37965 CinemaStar 5K500, 24x7, SATA 3Gb/s, 5400rpm, 8ms, NCQ
A very cheap 3.5" internal drive !
Made for Video/AV with ATA-7 Streaming Command Set!
The CinemaStar 5K500 hard drive provides a generous 500GB capacity and features innovative CoolSpin technology to deliver a new level of power efficiency and quiet operation for digital video applications. Key to CoolSpin technology is a low-power motor design that requires less power to spin up the drive than most 3.5-inch hard drives. Spin-up current typically requires much higher peak current than normal read/write operations. This reduced power requirement enables lower continuous running power and allows for use of more cost-effective power supplies. With customized features, capacity and cool operation, the 3.5-inch CinemaStar 5K500 enables a new generation of digital video recorders and set-top boxes that store more hours of video, run more quietly and use less power.
An exceptional blend of audio/visual (AV) features fine tunes the CinemaStar 5K500 for digital video storage needs. Hitachi SmoothStream technology is enabled to support the ATA-7 streaming command set, and SCT provides time-limited error recovery and thermal monitoring capabilities. Because IT-type data and video streams have different throughput demands, AV-Zoning allows the definition of various error recovery procedures for predefined ranges of data blocks, or zones. This feature enables the system to effectively deliver critical system data and time-sensitive video content from a single drive. Other features that tailor this drive for streaming video applications include Read Continuous mode, to help manage error recovery for video streams, and Media Maintenance enhancements, to help prevent track wear-out from around-the-clock operation.
