"Since 2003, Samsung's hard disk drives have complied with the (RoHS) restriction of hazardous substances directive as well as the (TBBP-A) brominated flame retardant restriction," said T.J. Lee, vice president of sales & marketing for Samsung Electronics' Storage Division. " The EcoGreen product line is designed to meet consumer demand for eco-friendly, high-performance devices with an optimized cost of ownership advantage."The Samsung EcoGreen F1 1TB HDD will be available soon for $199.
The EcoGreen F1 hard drive offers the highest capacity per disk for one terabyte hard drives, at 334GB per platter. This reduces the number of parts required to operate the hard drive and helps to boost the drive's speed for overall improved performance.
Samsung's new eco-friendly hard drive utilizes its low noise operation technology SilentSeek(TM) and NoiseGuard(TM) to achieve a quiet operation system. A reinforced flying on demand (FOD) technology controls the distance between the disk and the head, a safety measure to protect the head and raise the stability of data stored on the disk.
Samsung's EcoGreen F1 incorporates 5400RPM rotational speeds, 3.0Gbps SATA interface, native command queuing features along with a 32MB buffer memory.
