    Hitachi's debut PMR hard drive is the Travelstar 5K160, a 5400 rpm 2.5" drive with a capacity of 160 GB. The 5K160 integrates two platters with a capacity of 80 GB each, resulting in a storage density of 131 Gb/inch², which is slightly less than what Seagate claims for its 160 GB Momentus 5400.3 2.5" drive (133 Gb/inch²). Operating shock resistance is rated at 325 Gs; non-operating shock at 1000Gs. The drive will cost around $270 if purchased in larger quantities. The Seagate variant sells for slighly less - $250.
