Hitachi Offers A DIY Notebook Hard Drive Upgrade Kit
HGST is offering an upgrade solution that consumers can install themselves. The solution includes both a new internal hard drive for upgrade and tools to create an external storage device using the existing hard drive. The Hitachi Travelstar 2.5-inch Hard Drive Upgrade Kit will be available later this month at major retail stores nationwide.
The new Travelstar upgrade kit consists of a 5400 RPM 40-100GB hard drive, complete installation instructions, Apricorn EZ Gig II Hard Drive Cloning and Upgrade software, a high-speed Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 hard drive enclosure (USB 1.1 compatible), a one-meter USB cable and auxiliary power cables. The Travelstar hard drives will also be available in retail stores as stand-alone internal drives which are recommended for professional installation.
The Travelstar 2.5-inch Upgrade Kit will be available later this month at retail stores nationwide. Both the stand-alone drive and the drive with upgrade kit are available in 40-, 60-, 80- and 100-GB capacities. MSRP for the stand-alone drive ranges from USD $109-189; pricing for the upgrade kit ranges from $139-219.
