There's one at Xbitlabs: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/storage/display/2tb-72...

I still haven't seen any data on the recently released Samsung F3 Green 2TB, but I suspect it'll have its firmware tuned toward STR and not high IOps like all other desktop Samsung HDDs are.

Yeah seen that one, but of a strange selection don't you think?
Not sure why they didn't just focus on comparing only:

2tb near-line 7.2k, or
2tb near-line 5.4k, or
2tb desktop 7.2k, or
2tb desktop 5.4k.

Would make more sense don't you think?
