Seagate Presents Barracuda Festival For End-Users

SEOUL, Korea - Seagate Technology (NYSE: STX), the world's leading hard disc drive supplier, announces the launch of the Seagate Barracuda Festival, a special event for Seagate hard drive end users in Korea.

The festival runs for two months, from August 1 to September 30, 2003. A total of 500 Seagate hard drive users who buy Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 and Barracuda ATA V hard drives with a 60-Gbyte capacity or greater during this festival will stand a chance to receive bestseller books - worth up to 80,000 Korean won - from the internet book shop Yes24.

The event is organized by Ocean Technology, Seagate's local sales representative for Korea, authorized distributors including PC Direct, Esys Korea and Daewon Computer, and Yes24.

The Seagate Barracuda disc drive is among the fastest and quietest PC hard drives ever. The drive's revolutionary SoftSonic Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) motor makes the drive virtually silent, despite its high-performance 7,200-rpm spindle speed. The Barracuda disc drive family has earned more praise in the worldwide press than any other 7,200-rpm hard drive. Like all Seagate hard drives, it features the 3D Defense System, the industry's best disc, data and diagnostic protection, making it the most rugged hard drive available for personal computers.

Seagate is the worldwide leader in the design, manufacturing and marketing of hard disc drives, providing products for a wide range of Enterprise, PC, Notebook and Consumer Electronics applications. The company is committed to delivering award-winning products, customer support and reliability, to meet the world's growing demand for information storage. Seagate can be found around the globe and at www.seagate.com.
