Samsung’s 1TB Hard Drive

The TechReport has a nice review of Samsung’s new F1, 1 TB  hard drive.

For HTPCers like myself, who utilize only one PC rather than a server/client system, looking to up the capacity in their rigs or build a new PC might find this Sammy to be a nice fit for a living room PC. 

The Tech Report

If the Spinpoint has a weakness, it’s the drive’s performance under multi-user workloads simulated by our IOMeter testing. The F1 just doesn’t scale well as the number of simultaneous I/O requests increases, ruling it out as a candidate for demanding server-class environments. However, this weakness does little to harm the drive’s competency in desktop applications, its true mission in life.
