Product Description

With the SAMSUNG SpinPoint Series HDD's revolutionary NoiseGuard technology, SAMSUNG has introduced a new wave of quite PC operation. All SAMSUNG-created hard drives are equipped with NoiseGuard technology, making them the quietest drives in the world.

Most HDD noise is generated from mechanical vibrations of the rotating spindle motor and read/write sensor positioner. During the rotation process, the spindle motor's internal ball-bearings generate a considerable amount of noise. During the positioning process, high frequency magneto-electric interactions, head stack vibrations, and actuator also contribute to HDD acoustic noise.

The vibrations are also transmitted to the HDA (Head-Assembly). When HDA resonance frequencies are similar to the excitation frequencies, vibrations are furtheramplified, worsening overall HDD noise. In reducing HDD noise, controlling or suppressing energy transmission in the HDA structure can be as effective as minimizing the noise sources.

Through acoustic noise intensity distribution analysis, SAMSUNG researchers identified specific noise sources, and set out to fix these problems with NoiseGuard technology. After thoroughly analyzing the acoustic noise loss and absorption rate of various materials, the optimal combination of vibration-absorbing materials was selected.

The shape of the HDD cover was also designed to reinforce the overall structure of the most vibration-susceptible areas, further reducing acoustic noise. SAMSUNG's NoiseGuard technology incorporates these design improvements and significantly reduces overall acoustic noise levels, especially those that humans are most sensitive to. At SAMSUNG, we strive to provide our customers with products that are as comfortable as they are reliable.

In pursuit of the ultimate reduction of HDD acoustic noise emission, SAMSUNG has also developed another unique design called SilentSeek technology. SilentSeek technology differs from NoiseGuard in that it is designed to minimize the acoustic noise generated by the actuator movement, rather than suppressing the emitted acoustic noise.

SAMSUNG HDD is committed to the requirements and satisfaction of its customers. NoiseGuard and SilentSeek are just a few examples of the design enhancements SAMSUNG has implemented in its SpinPoint HDD products to meet customers' ever changing needs and to support new applications.

In summary, SAMSUNG's proprietary SilentSeek technology, when combined with NoiseGuard technology, provides the best combination of low acoustics and HDD performance, ideal for today's diverse and demanding HDD applications.
