Tested: Samsung EcoGreen F4 2 TB Posted on 07/02/2011 at 14:58 by Marc
We have just added the F4 version of the Samsung EcoGreen to our 2 TB hard drive comparative. In comparison to the EcoGreen F3, this version has a higher density with 3 x 667 GB platters instead of 4 platters at 500 GB. This is also the first Samsung range to adopt Advanced Format 512e.
Hitachi, Samsung, Seagate and Western all have hard drives with 2 TB capacities. What performance do they give? You’ll get your answer in this comparison of 9 models:
