Samsung Electronics Ltd. Releases its new 2.5-inch high-end Serial ATA hard disk drives targeted for todayâ€™s notebooks and enterprise computing applications.
Samsungâ€™s latest drives, the M40S Series, are offered in three capacitates including the 40GB (HM040HI), the 60GB (HM060II) and the 80GB (HM080JI).
The M40S Series has 8MB of onboard data cache and a spindle speed of 5,400 rpm. The drives are created for notebooks and enterprise applications that require small form factors. A latch mechanism eliminates the unpleasant rattling sounds of traditional 2.5-inch drives. Also, the clicking noise generated when a drive moves its heads on and off the disk is reduced. The drives use a Fluid Dynamic Bearing motor to achieve industry-leading operating acoustic noise levels.
Samsungâ€™s latest 2.5-inch hard drive offerings feature Fluid Dynamic Bearing Spindle Motor Technology, ATA S.M.A.R.T. compliance, ATA Automatic Acoustic Management and ATA Streaming. Samsung utilizes patented NoiseGuardâ„¢ and SilentSeekâ„¢ technology for the M40S Series.
