Samsung SV0802N hard drive specifications

SpinPoint V80 SV0802N - hard drive - 80 GB - ATA-133

The Samsung SpinPoint V80 3.5 inch disk drives are high capacity, high performance random access storage devices, which use non-removable 3.5-inch disks as storage media. Each disk incorporates thin film metallic media technology for enhanced performance and reliability. And for each disk surface there is a corresponding movable head actuator assembly to randomly access the data tracks and write or read the user data. The SpinPoint V80 drives include the AT controller embedded in the disk drive PCB electronics. The drive's electrical interface is compatible with all mandatory, optional and vendor-specific commands within the ATA specification. Drive size conforms to the industry standard 3.5-inch form factor. The SpinPoint V80 incorporates Advanced GMR (Giant Magneto Resistive) head and Noise Predictive PRML (Partial Response Maximum Likelihood) signal processing technologies. These advanced technologies allow for an a real density of about 60 Gigabits per square inch and storage capacity of over 80.06 Gigabytes per disk. It also incorporates 48 bit LBA for over 137GB capacity. The heads, disk(s), and actuator housing are environmentally sealed within an aluminum-alloy base and cover. As the disks spin, air circulates within this base and cover, commonly referred to as the head and disk assembly (HDA), through a non-replaceable absolute filter ensuring a contamination free environment for the heads and disks throughout the life of the drive.
