Targeted at PC, Mac and Notebook users, the two models are designed to offer all the reliability and performance features of Fujitsu's earlier DynaMO SF series but in a totally new design. Both drives are just 34x122x162mm in size and weigh 630g, making them 26% smaller and 35% lighter than the previous models. Operating power consumption has also been reduced by 60% to less than 5.7W. The 1300U1 and 640U1 provide capacities of 1.3GB and 640GB respectively. Other features include a rotational speed of 3,600rpm for the 640U1 and 4,558/3,600rpm for the 1300U1, a seek time of 23ms and a maximum internal transfer rate of 5.9MB/s. Both drives are read/write compatible with ISO 3.5-inch magneto-optical media and the 1300U1 can also read/write to 1.3GB GIGMO-standard media.
The new DynaMO U1 series will be available this month. The DynaMO 1300U1 costs GBP226+VAT while the DynaMO640U1 is priced at GBP190+VAT.
