About the Product Capacity Representation
Standard
About the capacity representation of the storage
The capacity of the storage device (HDD, SSD) of the manufacturer
is calculated assuming that 1KB=1,000 Bytes.
However, the operating system (Windows) calculates the storage
device capacity assuming that 1KB=1,024 Bytes, and therefore the
capacity representation of the HDD in Windows is smaller than the
actual capacity due to the difference in capacity calculation.
(E.g. For a 80GB HDD, Windows represents the capacity as 74.5GB,
80x1,000x1,000x1,000 byte/(1,024x1,024x1,024)byte = 74.505GB)
In addition, the capacity representation in Windows may be even
smaller because some programs such as Recovery may reside in a
hidden area of the HDD.
About Memory Capacity Representation
The memory capacity reported in Windows is less than the actual
capacity of memory.
This is because BIOS or a video adapter uses a portion of memory
or claims it for further use.
(E.g. For 1GB(=1,024MB) memory installed, Windows may report
the capacity as 1,022MB or less)

The capacity representation of the hard disk drive (HDD)
in Windows is different from the product specifications.
•• The operating system (Windows) calculates the storage device
capacity assuming that 1KB=1,024 Bytes, and therefore the
capacity representation of the HDD in Windows is smaller than the
actual capacity.
This is due to the difference in capacity calculation and does
not mean the installed HDD is different from the product
specifications.
•• The capacity representation in Windows may be smaller than the
actual capacity because some programs occupy a certain area of
the HDD outside of Windows.
•• For models with Samsung Recovery Solution, the HDD capacity
representation in Windows may be smaller than the actual
capacity because Samsung Recovery Solution uses a hidden area
of about 5~20GB of the HDD to save the recovery image, and
that hidden area is not counted towards the total size available to
Windows.
The size of Samsung Recovery Solution varies by models because
of the different size of applied programs.

conventional interface standards such as Serial and PS/2.
The data transmission specifications are one of the interface
standards used to connect a computer to peripheral devices.
These specifications include USB 1.0, 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0.
It is appropriate to support peripheral devices that require high
data rates such as an AV device, secondary HDD or CD-RW.
The higher the version (e.g. USB 3.0), the higher the data rate
provided.
