Product Description

By now the world knows that Seagate Barracuda 7200 drives, from the world's premier storage provider, deliver years of reliable service and high performance. This is a product family that has been strengthened and refined over 12 generations. It embodies the highest levels of reliability, performance and capacity. And this latest generation is a leader in environmentally friendly storage.

The drive is available in capacities of 1 TB and 750 GB with 32-MB cache, 500 GB and 320 GB with 16-MB cache, and 250 GB and 160 GB with 8-MB cache. The Barracuda 7200.12 drive is an ideal choice for workstations, desktop RAID, gaming PCs, high-end PCs, Home Theatre PCs, mainstream PCs and USB/FireWire/eSATA external storage.

After years of pioneering research at Seagate, perpendicular recording is now a proven technology. The Barracuda 7200.12 drive uses fourth-generation Seagate perpendicular magnetic recording technology to increase capacity and dependability by storing data bits vertically rather than horizontally. And vertically stored data bits mean increased data density—which means higher performance to increase productivity.

The Barracuda 7200.12 drive delivers excellent power savings without sacrificing drive or system performance, giving customers the ability to manufacture eco-friendly PC systems and external storage systems that meet energy savings requirements.

Seagate hard drives have long been produced with the environment in mind, and not just with low power consumption. With Seagate and the Barracuda 7200.12 drive, our customers can have the best of both worlds—top hard-drive performance and the satisfaction of knowing they are using a high-capacity drive with a very small eco-footprint.
