Samsung F4EG EcoGreen Announced - NEWS - Paxville - 24-08-2010 01:55 PM

Samsung has announced the F4EG their latest generation EcoGreen hard drive. The 2TB drive features three platters (667GB each) with 19% better standby time performance and 23% lower power consumption in standby mode than the previous F3EG

The power consumption numbers are pretty impressive, the F4EG consumes 6.3W during sequential read/write activity, 5.7W random, 5.1W idle and 1W while in standby. If these numbers hold true in our testing, the F4EG should be the most power efficient drive on the market, edging out the current leaders in the space.

Other highlights include SilentSeek and NoiseGuard technologies for quiet operation, SATA II interface, 32MB buffer and NCQ support.

Availability

The Samsung F4EG will be available in September in 1.5TB and 2TB capacities with a MSRP of $119.99 and $149.99 respectively.
