    From their web site, half a terabyte and next generation SATA imagine having 4 of these
    SEAGATE POWERS WORLD'S MOST POPULAR PC HARD DRIVE WITH HALF-TERABYTE AND FASTER 3 GBIT/S SERIAL ATA INTERFACE; INTRODUCES FASTER, HIGHER CAPACITY EXTERNAL AND PORTABLE DRIVES

    More storage for data, digital video, music and multimedia files on-the-deck or on-the-go; New 500GB External Drive, 120GB Portable Drive, and FireWire 800 interface

    Driving next-generation storage performance, capacity and portability for home and office computing, Seagate Technology (NYSE:STX) today announced a capacity increase to 500GB for its Barracuda 7200 disc drive family, as well as a powerful 3 Gigabit/second Serial ATA (SATA) interface targeted at high-performance applications such as digital video workstations, nearline storage and PC gaming systems. Seagate also announced the new half-terabyte capacity and a new FireWire 800 (IEEE 1394b) interface for its family of External Hard Drives, and a new 120GB Portable External Hard Drive with FireWire (IEEE 1394a) interface that gives consumers an easy way to expand and carry Mac and PC storage.

    The new Barracuda 7200.9 internal disc drive will combine 3Gb/s SATA throughput - double that of first-generation SATA - with 500GB of capacity, 16 Mbytes of cache and Native Command Queuing (NCQ) for even higher performance, and the quietest operation in a desktop PC hard drive. Seagate will also begin offering 3Gb/s SATA across all Barracuda drives, from 40GB to 400GB capacities.

    The new Seagate External Hard Drive will offer a whopping 500GB for easy storage expansion with push-button backup and a huge speed increase with the new FireWire 800 interface. FireWire 800 offers a significant advance in the speed of external hard drives - it gives consumers an easy way to install storage that's fast enough not just for backup but for real-time applications running on the external drive.
