The Momentus 7200.3 hard drive is designed for a wide range of systems including mainstream notebook PCs, workstations, and small form factor desktop PCs. Offered in 80GB, 120GB, 160GB, 250GB and 320GB capacities, the 2.5-inch drive could also be used as an upgrade hard disk for notebooks.
The hard drives are also lean on power consumption, allowing notebook users to work longer between battery charges, and are virtually inaudible thanks to Seagate?s SoftSonic fluid-dynamic bearing motors and QuietStep ramp load technology.
Seagate Showcase Video Library
In related news, Seagate announced it will introduce its Seagate Showcase storage solution, a new series of products that extends the storage capacity of Digital Video Recorder (DVR).
Seagate also said that the Showcase family of products will be designed to be compatible with Motorola's e-SATA capable high-definition (HD) digital video recorder (DVR) set-top portfolio.
The new Showcase products will provide television and movie fans with the ability to store even more shows. With initial capacities up to 1TB, consumers will be able to keep up to 200 hours of additional HD movies or 1,000 hours of additional standard definition television.
Plug-and-play capability, via standard USB 2.0 or eSATA connection, makes setup easy.
Seagate is working with Motorola to deliver external storage solutions for DVRs.
Seagate Showcase products are scheduled to be available for purchase on the Seagate website beginning in the third calendar quarter of 2008.
