    [news=http://img227.imageshack.us/img227/6076/untitled20mm.png]A PDF accidentally showed up on Seagate's website earlier today with the latest details on perpendicular desktop hard drives

    Seagate insiders contacted us early this morning with a few snippets of information (PDF) concerning the upcoming Barracuda 7200.10 series hard drives. Like other Barracuda drives, the 7200.10 series are based on 7,200RPM spindles.

    Two 750GB models have already shown up on the Seagate website. The Barracuda 7200.10 ST3750640A (PATA) and the ST3750640SA (SATA) will be two new models we can look forward to seeing this year. The Seagate webpage reveals dozens of other NCQ-ready 7200.10 based products ranging from 200GB on up. Cache information was not available via the website yet, but the official Seagate PDF claims the Barracuda 7200.10 series will come with 16MB and 8MB buffers. Considering these two drives will be the best of breed for Seagate, it is fairly safe to assume these drives will have 16MB caches.

    Seagate representatives have told us that the information posted was "very premature" and was not be posted on the website for several weeks. Seek time information has not been released yet, which has traditionally been considered the problem area for perpendicular recording devices. However, the 7200.10 datasheet claims all drives in the series will have a 4.16ms average latency time.

    Several days ago Seagate announced its Cheetah 15K.5 series drives based on 15,000RPM platters. The Cheetah 15K.5 series also uses perpendicular recording to increase densities, but is solely limited to SCSI right now. Pricing is not available yet on either the 15K.5 or 7200.10 series. All Seagate hard drives come with 5-year warranties.

    Oh it will come down , whats a 250 gb these days ? $139 CND . or close I think the rule of thumb use to be a dollar a gb . not anymore !



    Example :
    Western Digital, 400GB, 7200PRM, 16MB Buffer, S-ATA RAID Edition Hard Drive, 5-Year Warranty . $259 CDN. So .50 cent a gb. ?

    What would anyone other than a pirate or data pack rat need with such a sick amount of HD space? I mean If you add the capacity of every HD made in the 80's it wouldn't add up to that much.

    Movie editors. RAW footage takes up lots of space

    I use about that amount of space just now, but it's spread over 4 external drives. I use it to store media files so that I have easy access to them if I want to listen, watch, look at, download to a player or whatever.

    It's also an additional way of protecting the data, because DVDs and CDs are notorious for losing it.
