Seagate is on shipment target with 3TB HDD with three platters

Seagate has announced a new storage solution that is the first hard drive in the world to hit the 1TB per platter mark.

The new 3.5” Seagate Barracuda desktop HDD breaks the 1TB areal density barrier and will help to meet the demand for more storage capacity with the glut of digital media that is consumed by your average person today. The new HDD will have 3TB of storage with three platters inside.

Seagate notes that it is on target to ship the drive, but offers no details on what that target ship date is.

“Organizations of all sizes and consumers worldwide are amassing digital content at light speed, generating immense demand for storage of digital content of every imaginable kind,” said Rocky Pimentel, Seagate Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing. “We remain keenly focused on delivering the storage capacity, speed and manageability our customers need to thrive in an increasingly digital world.”

Seagate also took the time to talk about its GoFlex Desk products that are reaching 3TB storage capacity using an areal density on internal drives of 625GB per square inch. That is the industry's highest capacity per square inch of space. The GoFlex external HDDs will work with Windows and Mac computers and come with an NTFS driver for Mac computers.

Pricing is unannounced on both the GoFlex and the 3TB Barracuda.

People who like truth, logic, correctness... stuff like that, call it intelligence instead of repeating nonsense.

The correct title would be more like "Seagate Exceeds 1TB/Platter Areal Density". Not breaks, milestone, or barrier. They are all nonsensical words when applied to the facts stated.

So, anal people who require that the world conforms to their very narrow views? Maybe someone who likes the correctness of a run-on sentence or improper placement of quotation marks? Maybe someone who can't understand rhetorical questions? Maybe.

Seriously, if a headline like that causes anybody to get angry, then WTF? That's not intelligence; that's bipolar disorder. I'll answer my own question, then. Who cares? Nobody that's well-functioning.

If you feel things like truth, logic and correctness makes people anal, obviously any further discussion is pointless.

I wasn't angry about the headline, but it does devalue the content on the site. A title should, even if sensationalizing, at least make sense. Words have meaning, definitions, using a word contrary to its meaning is always counterproductive.

It is in fact intelligence to recognize error and learn from it, to do things in the most communicative way possible without use of non applicable hyperbole.
