Hitachi GST is expanding its enterprise hard drive offering today with a new line of 2.5-inch units that are said to be the industry’s fastest and most efficient in their class. The Ultrastar C10K600 drives are claimed to deliver up to 15% better random and 18% faster sequential performance than competing products on the market today while requiring 22% less power. Available in 300GB, 450GB and 600GB versions, they also bring capacity parity with 3.5-inch drives, but require 70% less physical space and consume 65% less power than Hitachi's 3.5-inch enterprise hard drives.

Time will tell us if the Ultrastar will become another Deathstar. I've never had any luck with Hitachi drives in the past, can anyone say if their hdd's have improved?
