Samsung Electronics Co. announced that its new 3.5-inch external hard drive, Story Station, will feature standby power consumption below a watt starting in November. The reduced standby power level easily meets requirements for the forthcoming European Union’s EuP (Energy Using Products) Directive for Standby Regulation, effective January 2010.

Samsung has lowered the standby power consumption by more than 95%, to 0.09W from the conventional
level of 2.5W, a move that will cut down on indirect CO2 emissions. Samsung’s introduction of the low standby power level is reportedly the first for any 3.5-inch external hard drive.

The reduced power level for standby mode was achieved by adopting a new circuit structure, which makes the drive non-operational when the power cable is connected and the USB port is not.
