Samsung’s compact A1 hard drive is just 42.8 x 36.4 x 5 mm in size. It delivers more than 3 times the capacity of 1-inch HDDs currently on the market while adding only 23 percent more volume. These powerful features make Samsung’s new A1 hard drives the ideal choice for advanced mobile devices that need a significant step up in storage capacity while still keeping size to a minimum.The 30GB version costs $199.
Samsung’s A1 hard drive offers improved battery life and the highest available resistance to shock. Samsung’s proprietary free-fall sensor instantly detects that a fall is taking place and parks the head in a protective ramp before the impact in order to protect itself. The drive also employs Samsung’s rotational vibration sensor to protect the data from heavy vibrations in noisy environments.
Samsung’s A1 drive is offered with PATA/CEATA/USB interface options and features a 3600rpm rotation speed, a 2MB buffer memory, shock resistance of up to 650G, a two-second drive-ready time, and nearly inaudible acoustic noise.
