Samsung has announced a new addition to its EcoGreen line of storage products. The new HDD is called the EcoGreen F4EG and packs 2TB of storage into a green internal HDD for computers.
The HDD hits the 2TB capacity using only three platters inside and it promises 19% better standby time performance and 23% lower power consumption in standby mode than the previous F3EG HDD using four platters. Each of the three platters in the F4EG has 667GB of storage.
Samsung has eliminated halogen compounds and BFRs from the drive systems. The HDD also has Samsung SilentSeek and NoiseGuard technology. The F4EG uses the 3Gbps SATA interface, NCQ, and has a 32MB buffer in a 3.5-inch form factor.
