Samsung today announced the F4EG, the world's highest-density, environmentally friendly hard disk drive (HDD) for the desktop market.
The Samsung EcoGreen F4 features a 2TB capacity – 667GB for each of its three disks – and is capable of storing up to 880 hours of DVD video or 500,000 songs in MP3 format.
The internal F4EG utilizes Samsung's high-density design technology to provide better performance, low power and improved reliability to its EcoGreen hard drives.
With its three disks and advanced technology, the F4EG drive is 19 percent better in standby time performance and has 23 percent lower power consumption in standby mode than the previous four-disk model, the F3EG.
The F4EG incorporates a 3.0Gbps SATA interface, Native Command Queuing and a 32MB buffer memory. The 3.5-inch F4EG drive is available in 1.5TB and 2TB capacities in the United States and EU markets with a MSRP of $119.99. Initial shipment is scheduled for early September.
