Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: PC / Laptop, Storage

Seagate 4TB hard drive

Seagate is now selling what it deems to be the world's first 4 terabyte hard drive to use 1 terabyte platter technology. The result is a four platter design that means a boost in performance while reducing material costs, resulting in a better drive for less money. According to Seagate, you can store 450 hours of video, 800,000 photos, or 1 million songs on its newest internal drive. As far as data rate is concerned, expect 146 MB per second, and boasts 64 MB cache and 7200 RPM speed. You can pick up the Seagate 4 TB drive on Amazon for $189.

Seagate: Momentus XT hybrid SSD-HDD drive is 70% faster

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: PC / Laptop, Storage

seagate momentus xt

Seagate began shipping its next-generation hybrid drive on Tuesday, the Momentus XT, which Seagate claims is three times faster than a "traditional" hard disk.

The drive, which combines solid-state storage with a traditional rotating hard disk, holds 750GB of data and caches 8GB of data on the built-in SSD. It builds on the original Momentus XT, which was awarded with an Editors' Choice, adding the 6 Gbps SATA interface that was one of the original's weak points.

Seagate claimed that the new Momentus XT drive is nearly 70 percent faster than the prior Momentus drive version. It uses adaptive memory—moving frequently used data to the SSD cache—and a related technology that Seagate calls FAST Factor.

Consumers can buy the 2.5-inch drive for $102 at Amazon, Canada Computers, CDW, Memory Express, NCIX, Newegg, and TigerDirect, or buy an OEM notebook with a built-in drive. Seagate said it had six OEM partners, but didn't name them. It's also difficult to say whether the drive's availability and price will be affected by the Thai floods, which has caused evidence of price gouging, even as Seagate's outlook has slightly improved.

Seagate announces GoFlex Turbo external drive

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Accessories, USB, Peripherals, Storage

Seagate GoFlex Turbo Drive

Seagate on Monday announced the availability of the new GoFlex Turbo hard drive, with a speedy 7200 rpm drive speed as well as SafteyNet data recovery.

The GoFlex Turbo gets its speedy moniker by first using a 7,200 rpm hard drive mechanism, faster than the usual 5,400 rpm mechanisms found in portable hard drives. It extends the speed with an included USB 3.0 interface, which is also compatible with older USB 2.0 ports (at a slower speed). Last, but not least, the drive has "Turbo" lettering on the side of the hard drive's case, which of course lets you know that this drive is the fast one.
