The STORY Station Plus line-up will also feature Samsung?s low standby power design that reduces the standby power by 96 percent to 0.1 watts (W) from the conventional 2.5W. The reduced standby power level meets requirements for the forthcoming European Union EuP (Energy Using Products) Directive for Standby Regulation, effective January 2010.
Samsung?s 3.5-inch STORY Station Plus external hard drive is available in densities ranging from 1TB to 2TB. The aluminum outer casing provides a chic design while it also contributes to effective heat dispersion. Key features include Samsung Auto Backup for ongoing data preservation, SecretZone software for personal data encryption and SafetyKey for password protection.
The STORY Station Plus drives will be available globally by the end of November 2009. It features a three-year limited warranty and the 2TB version has a $299 MSRP.
