Samsung Electronics' new 2.5-inch high-end Serial ATA (SATA) hard disk drives are targeted at today's most demanding notebook and enterprise computing applications. The M40S series are offered in three capacitates including the 40GB HM040HI ($80 estimated street price) the 60GB HM060II ($100) and the 80GB HM080JI ($140). All three new drivers are currently shipping.

"Samsung prides itself on being a technology leader and as one of the first major manufacturers to offer SATA technology in the 2.5-inch hard drive format. Samsung continues to up the ante and provide consumers with a wide variety of high-end storage solutions," said Albert Kim, national sales manager, Storage Systems for Samsung SSI. "The new M40S series gives enterprise and home users alike the ability to use best-of-breed Samsung technology for their corporate or mobile computing needs."

Members of the M40S series feature 8MB of onboard data cache and high performance 5,400rpm spindle speed. All mobile drives offer outstanding throughput performance and competitive power consumption rates, added the company, and provide outstanding reliability and industry-leading shock protection capability through an advanced mechanical platform and robust cover design engineered to minimize the intensity of external shock transmitted to the most critical components of the drive.

According to Samsung, they invented a revolutionary new latch mechanism that eliminates the unpleasant rattling noise of traditional 2.5-inch drives and significantly reduces the clicking noise generated when a drive moves its heads on and off the disk according to the operating modes.

The latest 2.5-inch hard drive offerings feature Fluid Dynamic Bearing Spindle Motor Technology, ATA S.M.A.R.T. compliance, ATA Automatic Acoustic Management and ATA Streaming. To ensure the quietest drives in the industry, added the company, the M40S series utilize its patented NoiseGuard and SilentSeek next generation technology.
