We will agree that solid state drives have taken the world by storm with their blistering speeds and large capacity models. However, for those that are unable to afford these expensive drives and need a ton of storage to play around with, Seagate BarraCuda Pro is a 10TB hard drive that will serve your purpose quite nicely, and quite effectively.
The Seagate BarraCuda Pro possesses a 3.5-inch form factor, meaning that it is currently meant for desktop computer systems. Since the hard drive boasts so much space, it is near-impossible to cram all of that storage inside a laptop-based hard drive. However, as technologies evolve, we will definitely see ridiculously high capacity storage drives for laptops released, but in the future. Coming to the technical details of the Seagate BarraCuda Pro, it features the model name ST10000DM0004 and has a maximum rotational speed 7,200 RPM.
The speeds will come nowhere close to the performance of a solid state drive, but if you’re looking for storage above all else, then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t choose this drive. Matt Rutledge, who is the senior vice president of Client and Consumer Storage at Seagate expresses how the company is challenging requirements of high storage needs.
“Consumers and organizations today face a similar challenge — what to do about the massive deluge of data and video they confront every day. Whether it’s dominating in the latest game, producing compelling multimedia content, mining data to help create new apps and business services, helping to protect people and places around the world against new threats, and more, the Seagate Guardian Series is designed to preserve your most critical data and move it where it’s needed fast so you can make the most of it. By incorporating powerful new features and capabilities, our 10TB products also make it easier for everyone to create, consume and use data.”
Seagate BarraCuda Pro comes with a 5-year limited warranty and will fetch a price tag of $535. That’s quite an expensive hard drive, but if you’re looking for extra storage, you might as well pay top dollar for it.
