Samsung, according to a recent press release, is offering up its new F3EG hard disk drive, the latest in its line of EcoGreen hard drives for desktop computers. Offered in 1.5 and 2 gigabyte capacities, the F3EG provides nice storage space for one’s ever increasing file size of games, music, videos, pictures, and other assorted applications. The bonus? Like all drives in the EcoGreen line, it is targeted towards being more eco-friendly.
Utilizing Samsung technology, the 3.5-inch F3EG hard drive is built with more green thought in mind. Boasting a self-proclaimed zero percent failure rate in unstable voltage environment tests, the F3EG also features a 40 percent power reduction while in idle mode, and 10 percent less power consumption while in read/write mode. Low noise technologies are also employed to make the drive run quieter.
Both the 1.5 and 2TB capacity F3EG hard drives are available in the United States and Europe for an MSRP of $179.99.
