CoolSpin design for desktop systems
The Deskstar™ 5K4000 hard drive provides an enormous 4TB capacity and features innovative CoolSpin technology to deliver a greater level of power efficiency and quiet operation for energy-conscious, environmentally-friendly computers. This drive uses Advanced Format, which increases the sector size on HDDs from 512 bytes to 4096 (4K) bytes, thereby increasing capacities and improving error correcting capabilities. Consult the Hitachi Advanced Format Technology Brief for more information.

CoolSpin technology is an optimization of motor speed to provide an ideal balance of performance, power utilization and acoustics. With low power, high capacity and cool operation, the 3.5-inch Deskstar 5K4000 helps manufacturers deliver more eco-friendly systems.

Power efficient for cooler operation and longer life
The CoolSpin technology, along with other Hitachi power management techniques, gives the Deskstar 5K4000 its 28% power savings over the Deskstar 7K3000. HiVERT technology helps efficiently manage power consumption. These innovations, along with eighth-generation Advanced Power Management, make the Deskstar 5K4000 the ideal choice for energy efficient PCs that run cooler, require less power and last longer.

Innovation for a more sustainable environment
The Deskstar 5K4000 demonstrates Hitachi ecological leadership with its halogen-free design and power-efficient operation. Both of these features helped qualify the drive for the Hitachi EcoTrac classification, which identifies products that minimize environmental impact in the areas of product design, manufacturing, operation and disposal.
