The Fujitsu MHV2120AT
In this review, we're testing the Fujitsu MHV2120AT, a high-end, high-performance model of Fujitsu's "MHV" series. It is a 120GB, 4200RPM, 8MB Cache, ATA-6 (ATA-100), 2.5" Hard Drive, for use in notebook computers or devices which support 2.5" drives. Since it is a 4200RPM drive, it will inevitably be a tad slower than the 5400RPM versions (or will it...). I reviewed the 5400RPM MHV2080AH a while back, but I was curious how this particular model would perform.
120GB Of Portable Storage
120GB in that little thing? Yep. Some of you may not need this amount of storage, but as technology enables faster and higher quality content, the storage capcities also increase. Currently, it's just one of those things you have to live with. If you like to edit video on your notebook in a local coffee shop, it's nice to know you won't run out of space.
For photographers, having a large drive is essential too, especially when you're in an area which has no access to desktop computers. When editing images, it is not uncommon to make several copies of one image for comparison and creativity. Media cards offering 1GB capacities, are becoming very inexpensive, and soon, a person becomes accustomed to filling up that media card rather quickly.
Portable Powerful Notebooks
Another factor of larger capacity drives, is the inexpensive but very powerful notebook. Only a few years ago, notebooks costing thousands of dollars can now be purchased for under $800. The higher the performance of a notebook, the easier it will become to maintain a large file database.
Mobile Drives Are Inexpensive
As of the date of this review, you can purchase a 2.5" hard drive for as little as $63 (40GB HDD). Average purchase is around $80. And they will only decrease in price. The 100GB+ models are not cheap, however, but considering how much data you can store on these small wonders, a few extra $20-bills might be worth it for you.
