Seagate BarraCuda 7200.9 Hard Drives

Barracuda 7200.9 is the latest in the Seagate 3.5-inch family of high-capacity desktop drives targeted at mainstream and high-performance PCs and advanced storage applications. The product enables OEMs and system builders to qualify one family of drives from a premier provider for a wide range of storage applications.

The Seagate Advantage

High capacity Barracuda 7200.9 disc drives, from the world’s premier provider of high-capacity storage, provide our customers years of reliable service and high performance. Using advanced manufacturing techniques and extensive design experience, Seagate engineers have built the world’s only ninth-generation 7200-RPM desktop disc drive. In addition, Seagate SATA 3Gb/s Barracuda disc drives enable bigger profit margins for system builders with enhanced reliability, higher performance and innovative features..

Advantages of Perpendicular Recording

After years of pioneering research at Seagate, perpendicular recording is now a proven technology. It increases capacity and dependability by storing data vertically, rather than horizontally. And vertically stored data bits mean increased data density—which means higher performance to increase productivity.
