Samsung Announces 2TB Eco-Friendly Drives for High-Performance Desktops

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the digital consumer electronics and IT giant, has announced the F3EG, its new high-performance, environmentally friendly HDD (hard disk drive)Samsung Electronics' F3EG Eco-Friendly Drive for the desktop market. The EcoGreen F3EG, a higher capacity model from its predecessor the F2EG, features 2TB capacity with 500 GB per disk that is capable of storing up to 880 hours of DVD video or 500,000 or more songs in MP3 format. With increased recording density, the EcoGreen F3 drive is more power efficient by supporting a capacity up to 2TB with four disks.†

“Storage-hungry multimedia professionals, gamers, and home PC users continue to increase the amount of video, music, photo, and other personal data they store and back-up,” says In Cheol Park, vice president, storage sales, Samsung Electronics. “The F3EG delivers all the benefits of a low-power drive yet features high performance and is environmentally friendly.”

The F3EG uses Samsung’s EcoTriangle technology to provide eco-friendly components, low-power, and low-noise operation technology to its EcoGreen hard drives.

Eliminating halogen compound and brominated flame retardant from the PCBA, the new model is produced with eco-friendly materials and meets all environmental regulations including RoHS (Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment), which is being applied worldwide as well as in the European Union.

Samsung says the new hard drive uses its low noise operation technology SilentSeek and NoiseGuard to achieve a quiet operation system. In addition, with its updated design and fewer components, the F3EG drive is 40 percent lower in power consumption in idle mode and 10 percent lower in reading/writing mode than competitive drives, according to the company, which also states that the drive received a zero percent failure rate in the unstable voltage environment test.

The F3EG incorporates a 3.0Gbps SATA interface, Native Command Queuing features, and a 16MB/32MB buffer memory. The 3.5-inch F3EG drive is available in 1.5TB and 2TB capacities in the U.S. and EU markets with a MSRP of $179.99.
