Seagate has now entered into that elite ring of manufacturers offering an incredibly huge 500GB 3.5” HDD
, spinning at the industry standard 7200RPM. These are the modifications to their existing Barracuda line, and will be available with the oft-left out NCQ feature in SATA drives. Aside from having a massive amount of space, these drives also sport one of the longest market warrantys, especially compared to typical HDD, with 5 years of protection. Though the most common method of getting larger disks is to stack more and more platters together, with 500GB of space who is going to complain?
