Seagate recently released its new Barracuda 7200.10 storage line, and with that, the company introduced the largest hard drive on the market at 750GB. While that is impressive in itself, there is more to the story. Along with bringing a new line and the highest capacity drive to the market, Seagate is also the first company to bring 3.5" desktop drives that use perpendicular recording to the market. You may be thinking that you've heard of perpendicular recording before, and that is probably because Seagate introduced mobile hard drives (2.5") using the technology almost a year ago. The technology isn't brand new. Technologists have been researching and perfecting the technology... Read more...
The Tech Report has just posted a review of Seagate's new 750GB, perpendicular recording Barracuda 7200.10 hard drive.  This is one monster of a hard drive in terms of features and capacity.  We'll be posting our review of this unit in the coming days... "Perpendicular recording does wonders for storage capacity, and thanks to denser platters, it can also improve drive performance. Couple those benefits with support for 300 MB/s Serial ATA transfer rates, Native Command Queuing, and up to 16 MB of cache, and the Barracuda 7200.10 starts to look pretty appealing. Throw in an industry-leading five year warranty and a cost per... Read more...

Seagate has been making hard drives for as far back as I can remember, which is why it's no surprise that they're on their 9th generation drive. TweakTown takes a look at the Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 HDD, which is the same technology as the 7200.8 drives, with some extra features."The 7200.9 series has models with the following specifications, 40, 80, 120, 160, 200, 250, 300, 400 and 500GB models respectively. This is truly the first drive to support all the HDD requirements from base system all the way to high end storage capacity of the lechers like me out there. What makes this line up unique are the different specifications that accompany each drive." ... Read more...

  Seagate's Barracuda V and SATA 150 Controllers Welcome to Serial ATA - A Performance Analysis By Dave Altavilla January 14, 2003   The day has finally come, where we have Serial ATA Hard Drives becoming available on the market.  Never has there been such anticipation regarding a new Hard Drive technology.  In kind, never has there been such an overwhelming "seeding" of a technology by various OEM partners with a new standard like this.  The Serial ATA standard has a ton of horsepower behind it with the likes of Intel, Dell, Maxtor, IBM, Seagate and the list goes on.  As a result, it's no wonder why motherboard OEMs were so quick to offer SATA as an integrated...
