First 4TB Hard Drive from Seagate
Seagate introduced the first four-disk 4TB hard drive for desktop computers. That’s right, 4 terabytes, 4,000 gigabytes, or 4,000,000 megabytes. And the best part? It only costs about US$205. As of now, the cheapest 1TB drives are only around US$75, or US$300 for 4TB worth of storage. With this new drive, not only will you be able to save some money, but it also consumes 35% less power over competitors.
These hard drives spin at 7,200 RPM with the data rate at about 146MBps. They have a 64MB cache utilizing Seagate’s OptiCache IT.
Look how we’ve come in terms of storage space. One of Seagate’s first storage solutions cost a whopping US$340,000 per gigabyte of storage. Now it is a mere US$0.05 per gigabyte.
