Data precautions
Memory capacity representation
Samsung Electronics shall not be liable for any data loss.
Please take care to avoid losing any important data and back
up your data to prevent any such data loss.
The available memory capacity in Windows is less than the
actual capacity of memory. This is because some memory is
required for regular system operations.
For example, for 1 GB (= 1,024 MB) memory installed,
Windows may report the capacity as 1,022 MB or less.
Product capacity representation
Storage capacity representation
The capacity of the storage device (HDD, SSD) of the
manufacturer is calculated assuming that 1 KB = 1,000 Bytes.
However, the operating system (Windows) calculates the
storage device capacity assuming that 1 KB = 1,024 Bytes.
Therefore, the available capacity of the HDD in Windows
is smaller than the actual capacity due to the difference in
capacity calculation. For example, for an 80 GB HDD, Windows
calculates the capacity as 74.5 GB, (80x1,000x1,000x1,000)
Bytes/(1,024x1,024x1,024) Bytes = 74.505 GB.
In addition, the capacity representation in Windows may
be even smaller because some programs, such as Samsung
Recovery, may reside in a hidden area of the HDD.

on the system label.
This device is restricted to indoor use due to its operation
in the 5.15 to 5.25 GHz frequency range. FCC requires this
product to be used indoors for the frequency range 5.15 to
5.25 GHz to reduce the potential for harmful interference to
co-channel Mobile Satellite systems. High power radars are
allocated as primary users of the 5.25 to 5.35 GHz and 5.65 to
5.85 GHz bands. These radar stations can cause interference
with and/or damage this device.
75
Appendix
Operation of this device is subject to the following two
conditions:
Health and safety information
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2)
this device must accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation of the
device.
Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Certification Information
This product can contain an embedded radio transmitter
and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed
the exposure limits for radio frequency (RF) energy set by
the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S.
government. These FCC exposure limits are derived from the
recommendations of two expert organizations, the National
Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement (NCRP)
and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE). In both cases, the recommendations were developed
by scientific and engineering experts drawn from industry,
government, and academia after extensive reviews of the
scientific literature related to the biological effects of RF
energy.
Wireless devices are not user serviceable. Do not
modify them in any way.
Modification to a wireless device will void the
authorization to use it. Contact manufacturer for
service.
Before a new model is available for sale to the public, it must
be certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the exposure
limit established by the FCC. Evaluation per each model is
performed in positions and locations (e.g. at the bottom on
the body) as required by the FCC.
76
Appendix
For corresponding model only
For body worn operation, this model meets the FCC RF
exposure guidelines when used with Samsung accessory
designated for this product. Non-compliance with the
above restrictions may result in violation of FCC RF exposure
guidelines.
The Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is a measure of the rate
of absorption of RF energy by the human body expressed in
units of watts per kilogram (W/kg). The FCC wireless devices
to comply with a safety limit of 1.6 watts per kilogram
(1.6 W/kg).
RF exposure or SAR information can viewed on-line at
www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid/. This site uses this product FCC ID
number on the outside of the product. Sometimes it may be
necessary to remove the battery pack to find number. Once
you have the FCC ID number for a particular product, follow
the instructions on the website and it should provide RF
exposure information or values for typical or maximum SAR
for particular product.
SAR level of this device while operating can be well below
the maximum value. This is because the device is designed to
operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power
required to reach the network. In general, the closer you
are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the power
output.
