Product Description

Samsung 2TB HD204UI 3.5" Hard Drive


Samsung HD204UI Spinpoint F4 2TB Hard Drive SATAII 32MB Cache - OEM
While other 2TB drives split their collection of bytes over four 500GB platters, Samsung's Spinpoint EcoGreen HD204UI F4 features three 667GB disks. This means the new platters boast the world's highest areal density at the moment. 
The 3.5-inch F4 is intended to replace Samsung's four-platter F3 drive, and has otherwise similar specs. The drive is bolstered by a 32MB buffer, and the platters spin at 5400rpm, rather than the 7200rpm rotational speed of some other 2TB desktop drives
The new three-platter drive also cuts down on power consumption. The F4 eats 23 per cent less electricity in standby mode than its predecessor. The drive will remain quiet while it's ticking away, taking advantage of the company's SilentSeek and NoiseGuard technologies. The new Spinpoint HD204UI F4EG also supports Native Command Queuing
