Terabyte Hard Drives for under $400

Desktop Storage - Barracuda 7200.11
Award-winning Barracuda hard drives are the industry standard for computing applications ranging from mainstream, high-performance and gaming PCs to workstations and desktop RAID. Now with over 42 million PMR Seagate drives already shipped, the proven technology and components of the 11th generation Barracuda 7200-Series hard drive enables Seagate to deliver high-volume shipments of the 1TB drive with the highest levels of quality and reliability - essential in ensuring long drive life.

"Seagate is a valued and trusted supplier to Nor-Tech, and has always maintained the highest levels of field-proven reliability with consistent product delivery," said David Bollig, president of Nor-Tech. "We look forward to enhancing our portfolio of offerings using Seagate's new Barracuda drives that will offer even more choice and value for Nor-Tech's customers."

The Barracuda 7200.11 stands alone in performance among high-capacity desktop hard drives, with category-leading 105MB/s sustained transfer rate - the highest ever. And with a low power rating of 8 watts at idle, the Barracuda 7200.11 is not only energy-efficient, but also operates cooler, increasing reliability. Barracuda 7200.11 also delivers industry-leading acoustics, as low as 2.7 Bels, which is nearly undetectable by the human ear.

The Barracuda ES.2 and 7200.11 will begin shipping in volume during the third quarter. The 1TB Barracuda 7200.11 will be offered at an MSRP of $399.99.

1TB Hard Drives for Consumer and Video Applications Expand High Capacity Footprint Even Further
Seagate remains the only hard drive manufacturer dedicated to the digital entertainment, security and surveillance markets with hard drives built to specifically address these unique applications. Seagate will extend its offerings in this area from the new 1TB platform and will provide details as these new products become available.
