Seagate ships 4 TB hard drives to consumers

US hard drive maker Seagate has announced the first shipments of 4 TB hard drives to consumers. The new drives are available now in the US where they cost USD 190 for a bare drive.

Based on the latest Seagate technologies the new 4 TB consumer hard drives belong to the company’s Desktop HDD.15 series and feature four platters with 1 TB of capacity each. The platters spin at 5900 rpm and while this may cause lower performance the new drives are pretty power efficient – they need just 7.5 watts of power to operate. The 64 MB on-board cache also helps increase performance and the average latency time is just 5.1 ms. As expected the Desktop HDD.15 series fully supports SATA 3.0 and provides up to 180 MB/sec of data when needed.

The only requirement to use the new Desktop HDD.15 4 TB hard drives is to have a motherboard with UEFI BIOS – and some cash in your wallet too.
