Barracuda 7200 Overview

Maximize HDD Storage Densities

Seagate Desktop HDD, 1TB-per-disk technology incorporates 340,000 unique tracks in the width of a single inch. This incredible storage density drives new capacity possibilities and lowers your total storage costs.

Seagate AcuTrac™ technology enables storage densities with accurate reading and writing to nano-sized tracks only 75 nanometres wide! That is about 500 times smaller than the full stop at the end of this sentence.
