First 4TB Hard Drive from Seagate

First 4TB Hard Drive from Seagate
Charles Chong

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.
