Samsung releases high-density HDD

EcoGreen
Samsung has released the F4EG which it claims is the world’s highest-density, environmentally friendly hard disk drive (HDD) for the desktop market.

The EcoGreen F4 features a 2-terabyte capacity with 667GB on each of its three disks. It can store 880 hours of DVD video or 500,000 songs in MP3 format. Of course it did not mention what the compression was on the DVDs and MP3s but we guess it just means “ a lot”.

According to Samsung the internal F4EG uses Samsung’s high-density design technology to provide better performance, low power and improved reliability. It has a low-power drive yet features top performance quality and is environmentally friendly. We are not sure how a hard-drive gets out in the environment much, but we have to admire its desire to save the planet.

Samsung's very chilly IC Park, who is the vice president, Storage Sales, said that with its three disks and advanced technology, the F4EG drive was 19 percent better in standby time performance and had 23 percent lower power consumption in standby mode than the previous four-disk model, the F3EG.

The new model is produced with eco-friendly materials and meets all the environmental regulations including RoHS (Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment) which is applied worldwide, including the European Union.

The F4EG uses a 3.0Gbps SATA interface, Native Command Queuing and a 32MB buffer memory. The 3.5” F4EG drive is available in 1.5TB and 2TB capacities in the United States and EU markets with a price of $119.99. Initial shipment is scheduled for early September.
