Seagate announces high performance Barracuda Green desktop hard disk
With many companies talking about their green initiatives, Seagate has recently announced their new Barracuda Green desktop hard disk that promise high performance and low power consumption, as part of their Think Green programs for a greener and more sustainable world. Available in 1TB, 1.5TB and 2TB capacities, the hard disk is now shipping worldwide.
Seagate today announced the availability of the Barracuda Green hard drive, the industry’s highest performance eco-friendly 3.5-inch desktop drive for low-power personal computers, multi-drive home networking systems and external PC storage.
The Barracuda Green hard drive, formerly Barracuda LP, combines the industry’s highest spin speed (5900 RPM) with Seagate’s SmartAlign technology to deliver outstanding performance. SmartAlign technology enables all the benefits of the new 4K sector standard while simplifying drive installation by eliminating the need for utilities often required to ensure optimum drive performance. The cool-running, lower-power Barracuda Green hard drive delivers whisper-quiet acoustics and helps reduce system costs associated with the fans and power supply devices often required for power-hungry systems.
Barracuda Green hard drives also support Seagate Think Green programs for a greener more sustainable world:
- 70 percent or more of the materials used to build the drive can be recycled.
- All Barracuda Green drives use low halogen components to reduce the negative environmental impacts related to these substances.
- Barracuda Green is designed and built to the highest environmental standards.
The Barracuda Green hard drive, offered in capacities of 2TB, 1.5TB and 1TB, is now shipping to the worldwide distribution channel.
