Samsung released Power-Efficient External Hard Drive - Standby power

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. announced the release of 3.5-inch external hard drive STORY Station, whose power consumption in standby mode does not exceed 1W. This fully meets the new EU standard for power consumption in standby mode, which will come into force in January 2010.

Samsung has managed to reduce the power consumption of its new HDD up to 0.09 watts, despite the fact that the usual rate for such devices-2, 5 watts. This step should have an impact on the indirect emission of CO2. To reduce power consumption, the engineers employed a new scheme of power in which the drive is disabled if the power cord is connected, and port USB - no.

The new 3.5-inch drive Samsung STORY will be sold around the world in versions from 500 GB to 2 TB. It is equipped with features Auto Backup, Secret Zone and SafetyKey.
