This is where something like the Seagate Portable External Hard drive comes in. It's a good compromise between the two, being portable yet also offering a decent capacity, with 160GB the largest size currently available. The drive inside spins at 5,400rpm, and has 8MB of cache, as you'd expect of a standard drive. There is a version available that spins at a faster 7,200rpm but that's only available at a capacity of 100GB.

External hard disks are useful little items. If you like the idea of backing up large chunks of data from multiple computers, having a large capacity hard disk that you can carry around with you is a great solution. Despite the fact that I think NAS appliances are the best option for external storage in most cases, a plug-in external hard disk is a far easier solution for the novice, and you can transport it between locations.

Though there are larger drives available, they do not fit into everyones budget. Simply going from 500GB to 320GB cuts the price in half, which makes this almost a steal. We will compare with one of our recently reviewed 500GB drives and see how it stacks up.

Seagate has introduced to us once again the largest consumer drive available, and we have it on our testbench. Surprisingly, not only does it have much more space than the previous 500GB model, it also proves to be much faster. Let's take a close look at the drive, and see just what perpendicular magnetic recording can offer us...

Seagate has pushed the capacity of their desktop drives even further with the release of the Barracuda 7200.10 hard drive. That's three quarters of a terabye of storage space in a single drive! The Barracuda 7200.10 is not the first Seagate desktop drive to support the new SATA 3Gb/s transfer protocol. Neither is it the first Seagate desktop drive to support NCQ (Native Command Queuing). But it is the first 3.5" drive from Seagate to feature the new Perpendicular Recording technology which we first saw in the Seagate Momentus 5400.3 hard drive. Thanks to Perpendicular Recording, this drive features a much greater areal density. This should translate into a higher media-to-buffer transfer rate. Of course, we can only be sure after we put this drive to the test. Then we will see how well it actually performs...

Seagate knows what they are doing, because they continue to impress. It's too bad I did not have another S-ATA drive on hand, because it would have been a more accurate comparison, but the Barracuda definitely held it's own. Despite coming short in most of the synthetic benchmarks, it rocked our real world tests. Chances are that going from ATA to S-ATA will vary in performance depending on your system. It's odd that the 500GB took longer to perform some mundane tasks, such as the Windows installation, because it obviously kept right up to the 160GB in terms of speed...

If you demand to be mobile and still have the hard drive space you need, then you should look at the Seagate Momentus 5400.3. It's the first mobile drive to be equipped with a full 160GB of disk space, and still retains great speed...

The petite size of the Seagate 160GB Momentus 5400.3 PATA hard drive certainly belies its amazing capacity. Its compact 2.5" form factor packs in 160GB of storage space! That may not be a lot when compared to desktop hard drives, but those 3.5" drives are significantly larger, heavier and more power-hungry. As far as notebooks are concerned, this drive is a monster in disguise!

The Seagate Photo Hard Drive looks just like any other CompactFlash card. But this CompactFlash card packs a miniature hard drive within its compact and robust case! What this means is a huge capacity of 8GB! In addition, because it makes use of a 1" hard drive, you can buy it at a fraction of the cost of a flash-based CompactFlash card of the same capacity! It certainly offers a lot more value for your money. Of course, most people assume that since it's hard drive-based, it will be slower than its flash-based rivals. However, the new Seagate 8GB Photo Hard Drive punched clean holes in that assumption...

Seagate was the first hard drive manufacturer to launch a native SATA hard drive with the Barracuda 7200.7 but truth be told it wasn't particularly fast or impressive. The 7200.8 update was the drive that the 7200.7 should have been, and now we have the 7200.9 which meets the SATA2.5 specification. The headline change is the move from a 150MB/sec interface to 300MB/sec but we all know that this will bring minimal benefit when you are running a single hard drive as 150MB/sec offers plenty of headroom. Instead we should concentrate on the less obvious changes such as the addition of Native Command Queuing which is intended to transfer data more quickly between the hard drive and processor...

Seagate has pushed the capacity of their desktop drives even further with the release of the Barracuda 7200.9 SATA hard drive. That's half a terabye of storage space in a single drive! It also comes with twice as much buffer memory as the Barracuda 7200.8 hard drive. Of course, that's only available for drive capacities of 300GB, 400GB and 500GB. The increased buffer memory will definitely increase its performance, but we will have to see just how much when we test the drive...

Even before we tested it, we already like the Seagate Pocket Hard Drive. It packs 5GB of storage space in a compact and robust package. Of course, it's not the most compact storage solution. Even CompactFlash drives are smaller and can come with more storage space. But if there's one thing that gives the Seagate Pocket Drive advantage over other storage solution is the fact that everything you need is in the Pocket Hard Drive! Its system of storing the USB cable and connector within the circular shell is ingenious. The integrated USB cable system is not only convenient but also makes cable management a total breeze!

Till today, notebook users have to content with a single hard disk and often a small one at that. Hard disk sizes of 40GB and 60GB are not only unheard of but actually in common use! Today, we are going to take a look at the new Seagate 100GB Momentus 7200.1 PATA notebook hard disk, which not only comes with 100GB of storage space but also 8MB of cache! Read on to find out more...

The Momentus 5400.2 is Seagate's second generation 5400RPM 2.5-inch hard disk drive for the mobile market. If you're itching to upgrade your notebook's drive to something with a larger capacity, then you'll need to know how it compares with its earlier sibling...

The Seagate 3.5-inch external USB/FireWire hard disk drive is certainly a drive for users with a huge storage appetite. With a total of 400GB worth of space to store your data files, MP3 music and videos, the Seagate 3.5-inch external drive as a backup device is certainly more than enough to last you for a very long time. The unique design of the drive makes it very appealing to users who want an external device that not only looks good, but practical as well. Its single instant backup pushbutton which works hand-in-hand with its bundled BounceBack Express software, is a convenient feature for users who need to perform backups as and when needed...
