The essential guide to IT transformation

Samsung is moving to 10.2GB per disk technology with its latest monsters, the SpinPoint V10200 Series. The new high areal density line offers 10.2GB, 15.3GB and 20.4GB capacity points. The spec also includes UltraDMA-66 interface, A/V-optimised firmware, and proprietary shock protection features. The V10200s also come with a new acoustic noise damper design, intended to "virtually eliminate noise when the drive is in seek mode". Samsung says the line will suit "consumer applications and Digital Video Recorder markets require high capacity, low acoustic noise, and low price". It has not published prices yet -- that will have to wait until October, when the V10200 Series is expected to ship. ®
