  1. Originally announced in March, Seagate is finally prepared to launch its Pulsar XT.2 server-grade solid-state drives later this month. The new 2.5-inch drives are available in 100GB, 200GB, and 400GB…

    "Seagate spends more time emphasizing stability."

    To be clear, I meant the text in their press release was more focused on stability than speed.

  5. This sound like an star trek thing, hehehe.
     
  6. Good for you, Seagate. Always remember your drives as reliable from way, way back.

    This looks like an excellent product with much thought put into the development process.
     
  7. I've been rocking a Seagate Momentus XT for about a year and a half with lots of partitions, formats, dual-booting OSs, etc. ... it's about as solid as they come in my experience. Judging from these comments, this isn't a commonly shared thought of Seagate's HDD/SSDs.

    SSDs... oh how you tempt me, but not my wallet.

    I've rocked Seagate, Western Digital, Hitachi, Fujitsu and Samsung in the past and they were all reliable. If anything the Western Digitals and Samsungs took the most abuse. But Seagate showed no signs of failure either. I don't think you can compare Magnetic Platter Drives with SSD's. Two different beasts.
