Seagate Announces Two 1TB Drives

Seagate announced a 1TB hard drive today, albeit late, but as they say, “better late than never.” The Barracuda 7200.11 and ES.2 revv up to 7,200rpm, cache up to 32MB with an average data rate of 8.5ms. The ES.2 is leading the pack offering consumers a SAS interface along with SATA and is aimed for archive and secondary drive usage. The 7200.11 is as quiet as a mouse with only 2.7 Bels. Both drives will ship Q3 and the 7200.11 will retail for $399.99, while the ES.2 is still without a price tag. Now watch Marc Jourlait, Seagate VP of Global Marketing, give his spiel.
