The ideal choice for workstations, desktop RAID, gaming PCs, high-end PCs, mainstream PCs and USB/FireWire/eSATA external storage. After years of pioneering research at Seagate, perpendicular recording is now a proven technology.

It increases capacity and dependability by storing data vertically, rather than horizontally. And vertically stored data bits mean increased data density which means higher performance to increase productivity. This drive delivers excellent power savings without sacrificing drive or system performance, giving customers the ability to manufacture 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 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is bare drive?

    A bare drive is just a blank hard drive that comes with no cables or any other extras that might be in a retail package. Usually for computer builders this is optimal because extra data and power cables will be supplied with the motherboard and power supply. Because nothing comes with a bare drive they are generally cheaper, but the hard drive itself is no different from the retail version.

  • Does this hard drive come with a sata connector or do I need to purchase one separately?

    No. It's just the bare drive, so you'll need to buy the connector separately.

  • Will this work on HP pavillion amd athlon 4200+ 1G memory, 250G hardrive?

    Yes, it works.
