Seagate Launches the New Barracuda SSD Lineup - 250 GB Through 2TB Capacities

Seagate, who are making strides in both storage density and performance of traditional HDDs with their HAMR and Multi-actuator technologies aren't going to let themselves be left dry in the SSD race. To that effect, the company, via a blog post, has just announced the introduction and availability of their barracuda SSDs, available in capacities up to 2 TB (in 250 GB, 500 GB and 1 TB additional tiers).

Like most recent SATA III SSDs, the Barracuda SSDs max out the data channel with maximum sequential read and write speeds reaching 540 and 520 MB/s respectively. There's a five-year warranty on these SSDs, which is in line with industry standards, and Seagate is asking $74.99 for the 250 GB SSD; $119.99 for the 500 GB one; and $229.99 for the 1 TB capacity. The 2 TB model will be available at a later date.

I wonder how these hold up to the older 600. I still use one daily and it's fantastic.

HP 700 pro 512gb is $95 meow. Those things continue to drop. There must be a huge overstock. Pro model performs decent.

120 is bonkers. Even IF I were brain dead enough to buy crapgate, I wouldn't. That's Samsung territory.

update: 860 evo is 100 bucks LOL. Crapgate SSDs DOA... just like the hard drives.

When will these a.hole companies realise we want high capacity SSDs at a reasonable price to truly eradicate mechanical drives!!

Didn't Seagate buy LSI who previously bought SandForce, what happened to that superventure?

Oh yea, Optane, LOL. :)

Got (2) Optane M.2s mounted in RAID 0 on an ROG DIMM.2, four 860 Pro Sammy SATA SSDs for storage in a Supermicro 8-bay and Optane 900P AIC sent back, 905P replacement on the way.

Even pulled (2) Seagate 1TB 2.5in HDDs out of some Sony external enclosures and replaced them with Sammy 850 EVOs on Day 1. Sorry Seagate, the belief is no longer there. :oops:

seems to be .

thing is for me is the hardware in all seems now to be run of the mill but its the controllers used is more to look in to on like ssd. sandforce controllers are used in a lot of brands like kingstons ssd's and seems tp be a poplar controller .

then foe me id ssd's that offer powerloss protection like the pilston s10 or mx 300 [mx 500s claim it in software instead of hardware as the mx 300 ] a lot of the ssd's like samsungs don't even mention or claim that in theres . will these seagates ?

there not saying , seems like that feature would be something to brag about when there are just as good at the same cost that does claim it [???]
