Seagate, the world’s number-one consumer electronics hard drive designer,
announced today at CES that the Seagate CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive, with a
massive 5GB capacity, begins shipping next month into retail stores across the
country. The first 5GB CompactFlash media storage card ever introduced, the
Seagate CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive offers unparalleled capacities at
cost-effective price points for digital photography hobbyists and professional
photographers that shoot and store large volumes of high-resolution digital
photos. Available in 2.5GB and 5GB capacities, it’s ideal for high-resolution,

media slot. It’s also the most cost-effective solution for entertainment, gaming

The Seagate CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive lets photographers shoot large volumes
of high-resolution pictures without changing the card — this reduces set-up
time and extends shoot cycles, which saves photographers valuable time and
resources. And its massive 5GB capacity reduces the need to purchase or carry
additional storage cards. The 5GB Seagate CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive delivers
over 1500 high-resolution (6 megapixel) pictures, or over 4000
standard-resolution pictures (3 megapixel) on a single card.

"Seagate wants to bring photographers reliable, simple storage — shoot and
store thousands of high-resolution photos without changing your CompactFlash
drive, then easily share online with friends and family, or print from your
computer," said Brian Dexheimer, Seagate executive vice president of Sales and
Marketing. "Seagate now offers a wide range of external storage products that
give consumers flexible and easy ways to manage photos, video, music, games and
business files. Storage for your pocket, your briefcase, your desktop and your
camera – all plug-and-play, all easy to use, and all sharing Seagate’s
well-known reliability and performance."
