Notebook Drives At Up To 160 GB Put Under the Microscope

Fujitsu MHV2120AH: 120 GB UltraATA

Fujitsu's model name and number indicates several key characteristics of the hard drive. MHV is the name of the current model family; next you will find the total number of platters (2), followed by the capacity (120 GB). The two last characters stand for certain features such as the rotation speed. Model MHV2120AH offers 120 GB and comes with an UltraATA/100 interface.

There are 40, 60, 80, 100 GB models available as well; we received the flagship 120 GB model for review. It did well in most of our benchmarks, but unfortunately its access time was only average.
