Seagate Barracuda Green 5900RPM promises fastest

Posted on Tuesday, December 14 2010 @ 17:48:45 CET by


Seagate officially introduced the Barracuda Green, a new 5900RPM HDD that focuses on eco-friendliness. It offers higher performance than other green HDDs due to its 5900RPM spin speed, and it's equipped with 4K sector support. The disk is shipping worldwide in capacities of 1TB, 1.5TB and 2TB.
Seagate (NASDAQ:STX) today announced the availability of the Barracuda® Green hard drive, the industry’s highest performance eco-friendly 3.5-inch desktop drive for low-power personal computers, multi-drive home networking systems and external PC storage. Seagate Barracuda Green, the world’s highest performance eco-friendly desktop hard drive. The Barracuda Green hard drive, formerly Barracuda® LP, combines the industry’s highest spin speed (5900 RPM) with Seagate’s SmartAlign™ technology to deliver best-in-class performance. SmartAlign technology enables all the benefits of the new 4K sector standard while simplifying drive installation by eliminating the need for utilities often required to ensure optimum drive performance. The cool-running, lower-power Barracuda Green hard drive delivers whisper-quiet acoustics and helps reduce system costs associated with the fans and power supply devices often required for power-hungry systems.

Barracuda Green hard drives also support Seagate Think Green™ programs for a greener more sustainable world:

* 70 percent or more of the materials used to build the drive can be recycled.
* All Barracuda Green drives use low halogen components to reduce the negative environmental impacts related to these substances.
* Barracuda Green is designed and built to the highest environmental standards.

“Not only do Barracuda® Green drives offer environmental improvements in power consumption and material usage, but these drives are also among the first hard drives from Seagate to offer SmartAlign™ technology,” said Dave Mosley, Seagate executive vice president of Sales, Marketing and Product Line Management. “This is important because the industry is transitioning to 4K sector formatting called Advanced Format to improve capacities and maintain strong error correction. However, the transition to Advanced Format without SmartAlign™ technology can be complex and require additional integration steps and software utilities to avoid performance degradation. SmartAlign technology removes these concerns and makes this transition virtually invisible for our customers.”
