Seagate Announces 1.5-Terabyte Desktop PC And Half-Terabyte Notebook PC Hard Drives


Seagate today unveiled the industry?s first 1.5-terabyte desktop and half-terabyte notebook hard drives to meet demand for storage in home and business environments.

The debut of the Barracuda 7200.11 1.5TB hard drive, the eleventh generation of Seagate?s flagship drive for desktop PCs, marks the single largest capacity hard drive jump in the more than half-century history of hard drives ? a half-terabyte increase from the previous highest capacity of 1TB, thanks to perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) technology.

The Barracuda 7200.11 hard drive combines PMR technology and components provide 1.5TB of storage for mainstream desktop computers, workstations, desktop RAID, gaming and high-end PCs, and USB/FireWire/eSATA external storage.

Seagate?s new 2.5-inch half-terabyte 5400- and 7200-rpm drives ? Momentus 5400.6 and Momentus 7200.4 ? deliver a combination of capacity and mobility for mainstream and high-performance notebook computers, external storage solutions, PCs and industrial applications requiring small form factor.

Momentus 5400.6 and Momentus 7200.4 hard drives are the fourth generation of Seagate?s laptop family to use PMR. The Momentus 5400.6, a 5400-rpm drive, combines a Serial ATA 3Gb/second interface and capacities ranging from 120GB to 500GB with an 8MB cache.

The Momentus 7200.4 hard drive features a 7200-rpm spin speed, a Serial ATA 3GB/second interface and comes in capacities ranging from 250GB to 500GB with a 16MB cache.

Both Momentus drives are built tough enough to withstand up to 1,000 Gs of non-operating shock and 350 Gs of operating shock to protect drive data. For added robustness in mobile environments, the Momentus 5400.6 and 7200.4 are offered with G-Force Protection, a free-fall sensor technology that helps prevent drive damage and data loss upon impact if a laptop PC is dropped. The sensor works by detecting any changes in acceleration equal to the force of gravity and parks the heads off the disc to prevent contact with the platter in a free fall of as little as 8 inches and within 3/10ths of a second.

Seagate?s new Momentus drives are lean on power consumption and are virtually inaudible thanks to Seagate?s innovative SoftSonic fluid-dynamic bearing motors and QuietStep ramp load technology.

The Barracuda 7200.11 hard drive packs 1.5TB on four platters and its Serial ATA 3Gb/second interface delivers an sustained data rate of up to 120MB/second for fast boot, application startup and file access. The 3.5-inch drive is also offered in capacities of 1TB, 750GB, 640GB, 500GB, 320GB and 160GB with cache options of 32MB and 16MB.

All Momentus and Barracuda drives are backed by Seagate?s leading five-year warranty. Shipments of the Barracuda 7200.11 1.5TB are set to begin August 2008. Momentus 5400.6 and 7200.4 hard drives are to begin shipping in Q4 calendar 2008.
