Samsung Spinpoint A1 HDD

Hard disk drives as small as a CF card?

That’s what Samsung is shipping now to their distributors worldwide. The Samsung Spinpoint A1 hard disk is initially available in 30GB and 40GB capacities; it offers higher capacity than conventional memory cards, as well as high shock resistance and low power consumption.

Samsung said its compact A1 hard drive is just 42.8 x 36.4 x 5 mm in size but it delivers more than 3 times the capacity of 1-inch HDDs currently on the market while adding only 23 percent more volume; could be ideal for MP3 players and PMPs.

It is equipped with a proprietary free-fall sensor that can instantly detect that a fall is taking place and parks the head in a protective ramp before the impact in order to protect itself, according to the company. The drive also employs Samsung’s rotational vibration sensor to protect the data from heavy vibrations in noisy environments.
