Samsung 1TB Spinpoint F3 7200rpm SATA 3Gb/s 32MB
Discontinued

Description

The Spinpoint F3 operates at 7200RPM with up to 1 Terabyte (TB) data storage capacity by using two 500 Gigabyte (GB) per platter disks. As well as meeting data center requirements for addition storage to meet rising demand and increasing performance needs, the drives also deliver high-performance with lower power for desktop computers and servers.

The Spinpoint F3 utilizes advanced 500GB per platter technology, so that two-platter 1TB capacity is achieved. Increased areal density per platter provides up to a 30 percent higher performance than a three-platter 1TB in the same 3.5" form factor. A reduction in mechanical parts also contributes to enhanced reliability in terms of anti-shock and data failure. Samsung's hard drive utilizes its low noise operation technology SilentSeek and NoiseGuard to achieve a quiet operation system. In addition, the Spinpoint F3 is compliant with the restriction of hazardous substances directive.

Dabs service = 5 stars Price = 5 Stars Does as it should, quietly. So 5 stars. For now? ... I'm about dubious about the longevity of this actual drive as the bag it came in was not factory sealed. Is this right? Did I get a 2nd hand refurb?? Time will tell. Date of manuf 2011.03 FW: 1AJ10001

This little beauty works out to 3p per GB. It's, at the time of writing, the best value hard drive on dabs in terms of cost to capacity. It's quiet, was easy to install and even came with screws.

I've bought four of these now. Three for various servers and PCs at work, and one for a PC I built for a family member. Fast, quiet reliable, and ridiculously cheap.
