Samsung Intros 1.5 Terabyte "EcoGreen" F2EG Hard Disk Drive


Samsung announced its new EcoGreen F2EG hard disk that delivers a nassive 1.5TB of capacity with 500GB per disk.

With increased recording density and reduced number of disks, the EcoGreen F2 drive is more power efficient by supporting a capacity up to 1.5TB with 3 disks.

"Lower platter count means less power to start the motor, less power to continuously spin the motor and a lighter head-stack which takes less power to seek," said Andy Higginbotham, director of HDD sales and marketing for the Samsung Semiconductor Storage Division. "With fewer heads and disks, the F2EG hard drive has a lower probability of head-disk failures, enabling customers to build more reliable systems."

As hard disk capacity increases from an increased number of disks, so does power consumption. However, Samsung?s F2EG drive offers low power consumption by using EcoTriangle technology. With its advanced design and fewer components, the F2EG drive is 40% lower in power consumption in idle mode and 45% lower in reading/writing mode than competitive drives, Samsung claims.

Samsung?s EcoGreen F2EG drive, which is suitable for both external hard disks and desktop PC, incorporates 500GB/1TB/1.5TB capacity, 16MB/32MB buffer memory, and 3.0 gigabytes per second (Gbps) Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) interface.

The F2EG family of drives is available at $149.00 MSRP.
