Samsung will sell 1TB drive under $199

Samsung has released a one terabyte (TB) hard drive that’s capable of storing around 40 billion songs (or something near that number perhaps) for only $199, which is less than 100 English pounds. The desire for HD-quality programming and hard disk drive (HDD) recorders has led to an increase in storage capacity, and now the industry is talking about things in TBs rather than GBs. Although only an option for the PC, the EcoGreen F1 from Samsung offers a huge amount of storage for serial downloaders, or, as the Korean electronics company suggests, those with large surveillance capture needs.

Any HDD for less than a hundred pounds has to be worth the money, and this capacity would surely be all the storage you would ever need. Ever, ever, ever. Samsung have attempted to keep things decent in the spec stakes too, with 5400RPM rotational speeds, and offering the highest capacity per disk for one terabyte hard drives, at 334GB per platter. This keeps the amount of parts needed down to a minimum, thus boosting the overall performance of the device. Samsung says the drive uses up to 50 per cent less power than other one TB drives and has technology to keep it quiet through operation. EcoGreen F1 should be available in June of this year.

    Hello RLSLOG readers, this is Ross Kemp. You might remember me from the tv-show Ross Kemp (snitchin) On Gangs. I have gotten word, that on this site i have been a called a snitch.

    People here have said that i would have snitched on all the gangs that i featured on my tv-show Ross Kemp (snitchin)On Gangs. People here have claimed that i have used the footage from filming the gangs, as evidence against the very people i documented. I have to tell you, that this is absolutely true.

    Next, i’ll probably snitch on this site.

    I’m not just a snitch,

    i am The Snitch

    Sincerely (snitchin on) Yours,

    Ross “The Snitch” Kemp

    oh woops i apologize for my previous post, i think at 25 bytes per song, you actually COULD get 40 billion songs on the drive.

    So what? I bought 2 Seagate 500mb drives for 170. I don’t get this pricing policy. Usually u’d get something that has twice the amount of something for less that 2 of something. That’s the rule.

  11. neezee
    May 26th, 2008 | 11:17

    @ 10…i assume u meant 500gb. and yeh i’d prefer to get 2x500gb than 1x1tb…2x500gb is way more reliable!!!

    although some people would like to get as much outta all there (S)ATA connections as possible

    Well, I think there is some element of sarcasm in this post.. that most of you have failed to spot?
    40 billion songs /more than you could ever need – sound like the sort of thing they used to say every time any new harddrive came out.

    Also, the pricing policy does work in this case, as you have to pay for the convenience of having just one harddrive rather than two separate ones. Convenience costs.

    This is my first tome posting a response to this website and for the record I love the site but this article sucked so bad its not funny does he know anything about computers? if 1 TB is all the space i’ll ever need then I just wasted all my money on TB’s that I don’t need, lets start formatting my Hard Drives and sending them back to the shops, please get this guy tech wise.

    I’m thinking of getting one too – at the moment I have a 250Gb drive in 5 partitions, and it’s lasted a while but it’s starting to fill up – a !TB second one will open up a whole new world of fun.

    You guys seen those DVRs that take PC HDDs? slap one of these in there :D

  22. Chode Muncher
    May 26th, 2008 | 11:39

    For $200, might as well spend ten dollars more and get 2x 640GB HDDs. That’s an extra 280GB! Cheeehoo. And I Lol’d @ the 40 billion. If only that was possible.

    do not buy this drive if you are looking for performance. the low 5400rpm make this drive crap.

    heres the real deal http://www.ebuyer.com/product/143288
    its a Samsung SpinPoint F1 HD103UJ 1TB Hard Drive SATAII 32MB Cache. very good performance and currently ment to be one of the best disk hardrives (excluding raptors) out at the moment. plus its less than £100.

    Is RLSlog posting old news? I’m sure Samsung isn’t THAT far behind the times.

    That is a poor TB drive. I have had my Hitachi TB with 250GB per platter at 7200RPM. Find me something better than that at less than 250.00 at Nov 2007 pricing. ha ha at 1+3 for spam protection.

  44. XiNiTHAOUS
    May 26th, 2008 | 14:13

    Pff… this isn’t news. eBuyer UK has been selling them for £87 ($170) for months now. 7200rpm version is a little more pricey though.

    Who buys Samsung drives anyway, Western Digital ftw.

    Quote “Any HDD for less than a hundred pounds has to be worth the money, and this capacity would surely be all the storage you would ever need.”

    1TB= all you would need? bold statement, I currently have 4TB in my PC and am looking at getting another HDD very soon as I only have about 40GB free…

  46. You fing pack rats
    May 26th, 2008 | 14:38

    Yeah, it’s not all the space you need especially if you download everything you see without regard to quality. Then again, most of you monkeys don’t know even know how to spell.

    As for me, if I watch a crap movie like Semi-Pro, I delete it to make room for something of value. And I don’t try to have every song, game and worthless application known to man on my hard drive either.

    If you are not producing/editing video, or running a server then you’ll just end up like one of those old compulsive bastards with a messy house in the end with every piece of garbage they ever found.

    This is fine for a back-up/storage for your quality movies and music; in conjunction with a 250GB (or two if you really are doing something) faster primary drive.

    Try a little discretion.

    May 26th, 2008 | 14:46

    @19 – they have been known to be unreliable and my system intermittently freezes or fails to boot, which I think is down to the hard drive (or windows). I wouldnt recommend the samsungs as they dont have a great reputation. WD or Seagate would be a better bet.

    WD 1TB drives have been at $99 here for a few months now, and they’re not worth $5.

    When something is too cheap, you need to ask questions about quality controls and % initial defects, especially when you’ve got 1TB of data at risk.

I have read these posts for about a year and i get a kick out of the stupid crap you people post on here, a very big majority of you act like its your god given right for this info and like the world owes you something….It Does Not Owe You ANYTHING!!!!

    £80 in UK for Samsung 1TB, its the second best Harddrive in the world, behind only 300GB VelociRaptor.

    Its still cheap and works perfectly.

    Samsung are exceptionally well regarded drives – most reviews put them alongside the seagate’s as the best consumer level drives.

    Same performance as the seagates, and far cooler too. WD are OK, but I’ve just had yet another one fail on me this week (in nearly 20years I’ve only ever had 3 drives fail on me – one was a maxtor about 10years ago, a WD last year and a WD this year).

    As to this drive, people obviously are unable to read – “EcoGreen F1″. There is a reason it’s 5400rpm – it’s designed to be a low power drive. Low power = low heat production. In a HTPC or in a PVR that’s important. It will also be quieter, so anyone wanting/needing a quiet machine will be advised to get one of these instead of a 7200rpm drive.

    I don’t know, I’m lenient to have a drive that large. If I had 1TB of data on it and the drive went bad I’d lose all of it. Currently 500GB drives are $99 or so and would be a better idea to get two of them for your “1TB of space”. That way if one dies you only lose half your data.
