Seagate Develops Eco-Friendly Hard Drive: Barracuda Green

December 29, 2010 No Comments

Is your hard drive green? This is becoming a more relevant question, especially now that Seagate has joined the growing crowd of eco-friendly hard-drive producers by introducing the Barracuda Green. It’s a 3.5-inch desktop hard drive that the company said “delivers whisper-quiet acoustics and helps reduce system costs associated with the fans and power supply devices often required for power-hungry systems.”

Seagate said the system, intended for use with low-power personal computers and multi-drive home networking systems, as well as for external PC storage, is made from 70 percent recycled materials and uses low-halogen components under its Seagate Think Green protocols.

But wait, there’s more: “These drives are also among the first hard drives from Seagate to offer SmartAlign technology,” Dave Mosley, Seagate executive vice president, said in a statement. “This is important because the industry is transitioning to 4K sector formatting called ‘advanced format’ to improve capacities and maintain strong error correction. SmartAlign technology removes these concerns and makes this transition virtually invisible for our customers.”
