Seagate Introduces Eco-Friendly Barracuda HD
Glad to see someone’s thinking green when it comes to hard drives. Seagate welcomes the latest addition to their HD line-up—the low-powered, 3.5-inch external Barracuda Green hard drive. It’s capable of pushing the highest spin speed (@ 5900 RPM) under the company’s SmartAlign technology, which also simplifies drive installation and helps reduce fan and power supply costs. Yea, whatever that means. And according to the press release—over 70 percent of the materials used to build the drive can be recycled. The Barraccuda will come in 1TB, 1.5TB and 2TB capacities. It’s good to see Seagate put a new spin on the term Go Green. Think portable!
