This innovative hard drive also features Seagate's 1TB-per-disc technology, which packs 340,000 hard drive tracks into the width of just of a single inch.

 

This means that when it comes to reading and writing data, the head needs to accurately follow a track that is a tiny 75 nanometres wide, around 500 times smaller than a small speck.

This problem is solved by way of  SmartAlign technology, which offers an easy, transparent way to make the inevitable transition to Advanced Format 4K sector drives, eliminating extra time, utilities and hassle.

Business users will also undoubtedly be interested in the fact that this product is designed with energy efficiency in mind, as it features an advanced power mode, which conserves energy when the system is idling. 

This Seagate ST2000DM001 Barracuda 2TB SATA hard drives gives you the Power of One, one hard drive platform for every desktop storage application and one drive with trusted performance, reliability and simplicity and capacity.

That’s about 500 times smaller than the full stop at the end of this sentence.

Large capacity, fast read/write and budget pricepoint.
Im using these drives in a 4 disc MHDDFS array in a HP Microserver, acting as a media server for all my movies, music and tv shows and the drives are great. Very quiet and fast enough read/rite times, ive had various streams coming off this server across multiple drives in the array across my network and it works so well!
Its not an SSD
