Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1TB Hard Disk

Hot Hardware give us the details on Seagate's latest product:

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 manufacturers are shipping terabyte-class products, so we should start to see overall prices fall soon, as these guys start to look at what the next step beyond 1TB will be.

If its anything like the 7200.10 (which it is!) its a very fast drive, apparently this one in terms of read / write speed is faster than a raptor, latency of course is worse but helped by a 32mb cache it doesnt really matter

Two 500 Gb drives are more economical. That'll probably change given time. One Terrabyte drives? Who'd a thunk it when a 4.3 Gb drive was big?

Heh. I'm still fondly remembering the days when a 12 MB drive was $1000, the seek times were measured in SECONDS, and the drive took like 5 MINUTES to get up to speed.

Wow, the cache of the 1 Terrabyte drive is 32 Mb. Some things definitely improve with time.
