Seagate Announces 10TB Desktop Hard DriveBy cheatmaster 06:43 Wed, 04 Aug 2021 Comments
Last year 10Tera Bytes (TB) hard drives officially became a thing, but up until now these monsters have been targeted at enterprises only. Today Seagate has announced the first ever 10Tera Bytes (TB) drive for consumers.
All of that power is packed in what looks like your run of the mill 3.5-inch SATA HDD. Following the company's most recent naming convention, the drive's model designation is ST10000DM0004. It's a 7,200 rpm unit, no 'eco' or 'green' labels here. It's branded BarraCuda Pro (and for some reason Seagate decided that "c" in Barracuda needed to be capitalized).
By this point you have surely figured out what the massive caveat is with this drive. Yes, the price. The 10Tera Bytes (TB) BarraCuda Pro costs $535. That's tough to swallow considering that you can buy two 5Tera Bytes (TB) Seagate drives for around $380 at the moment - adding up to the same power but saving a lot of dough in the process. Then again, if you only have one free drive bay, the 10Tera Bytes (TB) novelty could be your only choice.
