Product overview

Discontinued

Delivery

Standard Due date unavailable

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.

5* iMAC upgrade
Reviewed by Silv on 05/10/2010
Just installed this into my MAC replacing the 250GB drive that it came with. The drive is superb, it's quick, quiet and copying and moving files is a breeze. Thoroughly recommend this drive.
5* Unsealed bag
Reviewed by Alan O on 24/08/2011
BT 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

Quiet, fast and reliable. What else could you ask from a hdd?
5* Money well spent
Reviewed by Paul on 21/04/2010
I have two of the SJ revision and two of the UJ revision. One of them went a bit dodgy but was recoverable, otherwise I have no qualms with these drives. Over the last 24 years privately and professionally I have been responsible for the purchase of hundreds of HDDs from all the major labels (probably two Chinese factories) and these are the best IMHO. Roll on the 6TB version...
5* Great

Used this drive in my new Windows 7 system and it works really well so far. It is fairly quiet and also came very well packed in air cusioned wrapping. Will probably buy additional 2 of these drives for my home server.
