CinemaStar™ Z7K500 is the industry’s first one-disk, 7mm, 7200 RPM, 2.5-inch drive designed for high-performance A/V streaming with capacities from 250GB to 500GB. These 500GB per platter models use Advanced Format and have been customized to support digital video and surveillance applications. Advanced Format increases physical sector size from 512 bytes to 4096 (4K) bytes, thereby increasing capacities and error correction capabilities.
