Samsung launched their Samsung Story Station external hard-drive line in April. Today Samsung announced that updated Story drives will be launched in November with reduced standby power consumption of 95%.

Samsung has lowered the standby power consumption of the Story Station by over 95 percent, to 0.09W from the conventional level of 2.5W. The reduced power level for standby mode was achieved by adopting a new circuit structure, which makes the drive non-operational when the power cable is connected and the USB port is not.

Samsung’s 3.5-inch STORY Station external hard drive line up is available globally in densities ranging from 500 gigabytes (GBs) to two terabytes (TBs) and features Samsung Auto Backup for ongoing data preservation, SecretZone software for personal data encryption and SafetyKey for password protection.
The lowered standby power feature will be adopted in all STORY Station drives shipped from early November 2009.
