    Hitachi Global Storage Technologies ( Hitachi ) is announcing a new product line that gives DVR and set-top box customers a dedicated high storage capacity solution that's optimized for consumer electronics: the 3.5-inch CinemaStar hard disk drive. The new products, called CinemaStar 7K500 and CinemaStar 7K160, are based off Hitachi's award-winning 3.5-inch Deskstar platform . The CinemaStar family, which is expected to be available in early third quarter, brings together the following CE-specific features and benefits:
    • Silent seek acoustics for "bedroom-quiet" operation
    • Low power idle for cooler system operation and greater host-product reliability
    • Wider temperature range to support warmer operating environments, especially in confined spaces like entertainment centers
    • Smart Command Transport and adaptive error recovery for optimized video streaming and picture quality
    • Thermal fly height control for improved error rates in varied temperature conditions
    The CinemaStar 7K500 will be made available in two- and three-disk designs with 250, 320, 400 and 500 GB of storage capacity, while the CinemaStar 7K160's one-disk design offers 80 and 160 GB of capacity. The new CE-focused drives meet the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliance directive issued last year by the European Union . CinemaStar hard drives are ideal for use in standard and high-definition DVRs, DVD/HDD recorders, DVR-enabled televisions, set-top boxes and media center PCs. For additional information, clik here.
