The 1.5TB, 3.5-in. EcoGreen F2EG sells for $149
Samsung Electronics Co. today announced what it said is the world's first 500GB-per-platter hard drive. The EcoGreen F2EG hard disk delivers up 1.5TB of capacity on three platters. Because the drive has fewer platters and therefore fewer moving parts, Samsung claimed that the drive is more reliable than past iterations of multiplatter, high-capacity hard disk drives.
