Tuesday Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. announced that it managed to cram 2TB of storage capacity onto 3 platters--667GB each--in its new F4EG "environmentally friendly" 3.5-inch internal hard drive. The new HDD--including a 1.5TB version--is part of Samsung's EcoGreen series, utilizing the company's touted "high-density design technology."
“Storage-hungry multimedia professionals, gamers and home PC users continue to increase the amount of video, music, photo and other personal data they store and back-up,” said I.C. Park, vice president, Storage Sales, Semiconductor Business, Samsung Electronics. “The F4EG delivers all the benefits of a low-power drive yet features top performance quality and is environmentally friendly.”
According to the company, the new HDD is better than the previous four-disk model--the F3EG--by providing a 19-percent increase in standby time performance while maintaining a 23-percent lower power consumption in standby mode. The drive also incorporates a 3.0 Gbps SATA interface, Native Command Queuing and a 32MB buffer memory.
Samsung's F4EG is slated to hit the market in September starting at $119.99. Both models will also be manufactured with eco-friendly materials and will meet all environmental regulations.
you have 2TB of old dos games??? are there even 2TB of old dos games!??
BTW, yes you are showing your age if your restoring data from old DATA cartridges which stored anywere from 40mb - 1gb in the 1990s. Today you'll need to spring for a Blu-Ray Drive at about the same price. I can't even find 25-50gb of movies and data to backup at the moment to justify the purchase, therefore time is on my side until they invevatibly cut the price of old tech... :-)
I already have 6 2TB on my PC... and is getting tight .... ouch!
