The Samsung Spinpoint M6 320GB is the first three-disk hard drive to deliver a whopping half- terabyte capacity using the industry's most sophisticated recording and mechanism technology. The Spinpoint M6's design is truly revolutionary by fitting three disks within the industry's standard 9.5mm Z-height. This is critical because it enables notebook PC manufacturers to easily integrate the M6 into the tens of millions of notebook PCs that ship every quarter. The M6 drive offers the industry's largest capacity for premium notebook PCs, slim desktop computers, and external hard drives. This SATA 1.5Gbps drive has 167GBs of formatted capacity per disk. The Spinpoint M6 utilizes Samsung perpendicular recording technology, enabling the drive to set new records in both areal density and platter capacity. The Spinpoint M6 hard drive features a 5400rpm spindle speed, 8MB cache, and free- fall sensor available as optional feature. To improve recording stability during dramatic temperature changes, the Spinpoint M6 also features Samsung's Flying-on-Demand head technology. Samsung's Spinpoint M6 320GB low power requirements are due to the drive's proprietary printed circuit board electronics. Leveraging its expertise in mechanism and firmware design, Samsung has minimized acoustic noise in this drive.
