New SSD's are aimed at consumer and enterprise use
Seagate has been making storage devices for decades now. The company is particularly well known for traditional hard drive storage where it makes some of the fastest and highest capacity hard drives on the market. However, Seagate has now announced a brand new complete line of SSD drives using flash storage.
The company unveiled its first client solid-state storage drive and its next-generation enterprise SSD this week. The line features the new Seagate 600 SSD, the Seagate 600 Pro SSD, and the Seagate 1200 SSD. All of storage solutions are designed to be fast and provide high data integrity.
“By adding more SSDs to our family of hard disk and solid state hybrid drives, we now have the broadest portfolio of storage products in the industry, delivering one-stop shopping for our customers and partners,” said Gary Gentry, senior vice president and general manager of Seagate’s solid state drive business. “Seagate is committed to becoming a premier supplier of both solid state drives and storage class memory products. We have put in place a winning strategy for developing multiple high value, flash based products and solutions for our customers.”
The Seagate 600 SSD promises fast boot times, short application load times, and improved responsiveness. It will be offered in multiple Z-heights including an industry first 5 mm high drive a new ultrathin devices and laptops. The drive has a 480 GB of storage and uses a 2.5-inch form factor.
The Seagate 600 Pro SSD will also be available in up to 480 GB and uses a 2.5-inch form factor. It's optimized for performance and low power consumption promising the best IOPS/watt performance of any drive in its class.
The Seagate 1200 SSD is optimized for high-performance and uses a dual port 12 Gb/s SAS connector. It will offer up to 800 GB capacity and comes in 1.8-inch or 2.5-inch form factors. Pricing on the drives is unknown at this time.
AnandTech tested both the 600 and the 600 Pro
, and found that while both drives offer admirable performance, power consumption (especially at idle) isn’t exactly up to par with competitors. The drives also don’t support hardware encryption.

How about 30GB for $55? TigerDirect has a couple of those... But I would get more, my 40GB SSD is full just from Windows and Visual Studio and applications, there's no room left for games.
