Features

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., announces its EcoGreen F2EG hard disk that features 1.5 TB of capacity with 500 GB per disk. With increased recording density and reduced number of disks, the EcoGreen F2 drive provides efficiency by supporting a capacity up to 1.5TB with 3 disks. Samsung's F2EG drive offers low power consumption by using EcoTriangle™ a low-power, low-heat, low-noise operation technology resulting in 40% lower in power consumption in idle mode and 45% lower in reading/writing mode. The low-platter count of the drive, which splits the storage over three 500GB platters, means less wasted energy use versus four- and five-platter drives. Versions with 500GB and 1TB of space will also cut down on power. The EcoGreen F2EG features options for buffer capacity of 16MB or 32MB. Buffer memory is the amount of data a drive can store for quick, temporary access. The larger the buffer size, the easier it is to access documents and programs that are opened often. The EcoGreen F2EG features Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) technology where PMR arranges magnetized cells vertically and allows the hard disk drive to record a greater number of data bits in the same area. Perpendicular recording uses higher coercivity material because the head's write field penetrates the medium more efficiently in the perpendicular geometry. The hard disk drive also features SATA interface. SATA is used to connect storage devices such as hard disk drives to motherboards and can increase system performance, improve efficiency and reduce development costs greatly. SATA also uses low-voltage differential signaling, which is consistent with low power and cooling requirements. Signal voltages have been lowered to a mere 0.7 volts on SATA. This enables lower power handling on a disk drive and reduces the size of a switch controller. In addition to the European Union (EU)'s Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Regulations, Samsung's F2EG drive complies with other environmental regulations.
