Hitachi Microdrive 6GB Digital Media Hard Disk Drive
Model: md6gb-bp (New)
Hitachi announces the Microdrive 3K6, a 3600 rpm, 1.0-inch hard disk drive designed to meet the needs of high-capacity, ultra-portable electronic devices.
With a maximum capacity of 6GB, the drive holds 50 percent more than its predecessor more photos, more music, more data in the same compact size.
The new Microdrive 3K6 delivers a higher data rate for improved performance and is available in an embedded version or as removable storage.
Optimized embedded design
The embedded Microdrive 3K6, configured with a True IDE interface, offers Ultra DMA high speed mode.
This compact, high-capacity Microdrive is a cost-effective, high-performance solution for handheld consumer electronics applications.
