Creative chooses Seagate's new 1-Inch Hard Drive


Seagate Technology (NYSE:STX) and Creative Technology Ltd (Nasdaq: CREAF) announced that Creative has chosen Seagate as the strategic supplier of disc drive storage technology for its new portable audio product lines, starting with Seagate's new ST1 Series 1-inch hard drive.

Over the years, Creative has built upon the popularity of its PC audio success to include other hand held consumer electronics application like Zen Jukebox portable media players.

The Seagate ST1 Series, the industry's first 1-inch hard drive to offer 2.5GB and 5GB capacities, lets consumers download larger libraries of higher-fidelity music to pocket players. Seagate's new and unique RunOn Technology improves music streaming performance when jogging or walking.

The Seagate ST1 Series can hold up to 90 hours of high-quality music files (128 kbps), its typical time-to-ready is 2 seconds or less, and its unique rugged design helps music players withstand the abuse that hand-held devices take.

"Creative is pleased to team up with a global technology leader like Seagate to deliver leading edge consumer products to the masses," said Sim Wong Hoo, chairman and CEO of Creative Technology Ltd. "Adoption of Seagate disc drives into Creative's portable audio product series clearly demonstrates our confidence in Seagate's storage technology leadership. We believe strongly that Seagate is well-suited to enable Creative to expand its goal of enhancing the PC experience for consumers from all walks of life."

"When electronics customers think of Creative, they see innovative, reliable entertainment products. And Seagate is leveraging 25 years of industry innovation to move disc drive advancements beyond traditional capacities, product design, technologies and applications," said Brian Dexheimer, Seagate executive vice president of Global Sales and Marketing. "Based on direct customer input at our CE Design Service Centers, Seagate develops drives to deliver the features CE manufacturers ask for - quiet acoustics, high reliability and top streaming performance. Seagate consumer electronics engineers are ready to help solve integration issues at the company's unique Design Service Centers.
