Samsung Unveils STORY Station External Hard Drive with USB 3.0 Interface
Samsung Electronics yesterday announced the fastest external hard drive yet in its STORY Station product portfolio, Samsung STORY Station 3.0 with the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface.
The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface offers a maximum transfer rate of 5 gigabits per second (Gbps) compared to 480 megabits per second (Mbps) in USB 2.0. The new interface is backward-compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 interfaces.
The STORY Station 3.0 drives are available in densities from 1TB to 2TB (HX-DTA10EB, HX-DT015EB, HX-DT020EB). Preloaded software includes Samsung Auto Backup, SecretZone and SafetyKey for data encryption and password protection.
The STORY Station line-up is the winner of an iF award 2009 in the product design category. The minimalistic design was inspired by retro electronics and combines a grey, brushed aluminum casing with the logo stenciled in red. The casing materials are RoHS-compliant, and the ventilation slits facilitate even heat dissipation to ensure reliable performance.
The STORY Station 3.0 features three energy-saving modes including idle, sleep and suspend. The standby power level meets requirements for the European Union EuP (Energy Using Products) Directive for Standby Regulation.
The Samsung STORY Station 3.0 drives will be available globally in April, 2010 backed up a three-year warranty.
