With CoolSpin, hard disk will operate more quite and only need small resource to process digital video applications. They key of this technology is the optimize of motor speed to create a balance between performance, effective power usage, and its acoustic.

Physically, there is nothing that interesting enough to be reviewed from this product. The interface uses SATA as well as the power supply. When it was tested, Hitachi HCS5C1050CLA has a good performance. But, unfortunately, when we were using the product for a long time, its performance was decreasing. Especially on its access time, which was record the longest time on 20.2 ms.
