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.
