Just in case you shot right down to the news section this morning and missed the link at the top of the page, we wanted to pop in and let you all know that we have just posted a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate the features, performance, and power consumption of Western Digital's Caviar and RE.2 GreenPower 1TB hard drives.  In addition to their large capacities, these drives offer a number of proprietary features designed to lower their power consumption and acoustic profiles, like IntelliPower, IntelliSeek, IntelliPark, and in the RE.2's case RAFF (Rotary Acceleration...

We wish the current "green" trend would have happened a long time ago, and we actually hope that it results in a permanent mentality adjustment rather than fading like so many trends do. We are happy to see that companies are now expected to be somewhat environmentally-conscious. We love to see companies compete on metrics like performance per watt and we know we aren't the only ones who have an affinity for new architectures and designs that result in both efficiency improvements and performance gains. It wasn't so long ago that efficiency and performance were almost always inversely... Read more...
A few months ago, we evaluated the 1-terabyte (TB) Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 SATA hard drive and found the drive to offer many positive features in addition to its massive capacity.  In this article though, we'll be looking at Seagate's new flagship enterprise-class, mass storage solution, the 1TB Barracuda ES.2.  While the Barracuda 7200.11 and ES.2 are almost identical drives, there are some important differences to highlight between them.  For instance, the 7200.11 has a mean time between failure (MTBF) rating of 750,000 hours while the ES.2 boasts a superior and more server-oriented...

  Seagate was surprisingly late to join the small, but elite club of storage manufacturers shipping one terabyte (1TB) class hard drives. Somewhat expectedly, the first out of the gate was Hitachi, who made it to market several months beforehand with a high-density five-platter 1TB hard disk design. While Hitachi’s performance, thermals, and acoustics have all been tested to be fairly solid overall, many high-end buyers have been waiting for other large manufacturers, namely Western Digital and Seagate, to get into the game to see how these other products compare. Now, all of the major disk... Read more...
Just in case you're the type who like to jump right down to the news, we wanted to let you all know that we have just posted a new article here at HotHardware.com in which we evaluate the features and performance of the Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1TB Hard Drive.  Here’s quote from the article...“Seagate’s Barracuda 7200.11 drive has been on the radar for quite some time, and as of now, it appears to be shipping in volume. The 7200.11 family (named as the 11th-generation of 7,200 RPM hard disks) allows for storage capacities up to 1000GB/1TB and cache sizes up to a whopping 32 MB, along with... Read more...
The Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 was disclosed this morning, which the hard drive manufacturer touts as “the fastest high-capacity drive to date.” The 7200.11 is the company’s first 1TB hard disk drive, achieved with the use of only four platters (as opposed to five). Power consumption is modest at 8W idle, which they say, when taken into consideration with the four platters, would minimize heat that harms drives in the long run. Sustained transfer rates measure at about 105MBps. Nonetheless, with high capacity drives, the price is hardly proportional (they should be on sale for about $400). If you... Read more...

Seagate announces a monster hard drive! "We should expect to see 1TB hard disk drive products within 6 months." In a statement to DailyTech earlier today, the company claimed: Seagate's 1TB hard drive will be our second generation 3.5-inch hard drive to feature capacity-boosting perpendicular recording technology, and it will use fewer heads and discs than similar-capacity products we expect to see from our competitors. It is clear that fewer heads and discs, along with our proven perpendicular technology, can increase drive reliability, and also reduce operating temperatures, power... Read more...
