Don’t we need something more than 16GB of on-flash storage in our tablets? Well then you guys are not thinking ahead. Seagate is entering the market with its latest 5mm laptop ultrathin hard drive. It has a storage capacity of 500 GB which looks ideal for ultrabooks and tablets. Its available in both 320GB and 500GB. As the name indicates it’s the conventional hard drive and not the solid state drive. Traditional HDD offers a lot more storage capacity for price value than the SSDs which not only have little capacity but are also higher in price.
Seagate technology has unveiled the world’s first purpose built 4TB hard drive for video storage applications put up to deliver high quality performance and operation. With its capacity of 4TB, this is equivalent of 480 hours of high definition content and specially designed for video surveillance, set-top recording box and DVR’s (digital video recorders).
Seagate who we have known for years for their hard drives has been relatively quiet in the solid state drive space. Well it seems that is changing as today they are unveiling a complete solid state drive line, including their first consumer-based solid state drives. The new products include the Seagate 600 SSD, Seagate 600 Pro SSD, Seagate 1200 SSD and Seagate X8 Accelerator.
Seagate has reportedly begun shipping what it claims is the industry’s first and only 4TB hard drive to utilize 1TB-per-platter technology. These drives can be found in Seagate’s Barracuda 7200.15 series. Seagate says the four-platter design allows for the highest performance possible while doubling capacity and reducing costs, ultimately giving consumers the best of all worlds. The drive has 4000 GB of unformatted space, a 7,200 RPM spindle-speed, 64 MB buffer, and SATA 6 Gb/s interface.
At CES 2013 Seagate is stepping away from the normal storage options and expanding their horizons into something more “innovative appropriate”. Wirelessly streaming large files from any storage option to a device has been a pain ever since the idea was introduced. Video streaming was the largest of these pains. Seagate decided to develop Novocaine in the form of a storage device that integrates with a specific application for this very task. Even with the overworked WiFi connection and saturated network the video that was shown to use streamed like butter. Check out the video for more in depth coverage.
