First Look: Seagate intros its first consumer-grade SSD

2:37 /

CNET editor Dong Ngo is almost so happy about Seagate's new and first consumer-grade SSD, the Seagate 600.

Hey guys. Dong Ngo here and I have something today you've never seen before. That's right. For the longest time, I've been bugging Seagate to make something else other than the traditional hard drive and today in an extreme effort to make me happy is introduce a very first, it's first solid-state drive for consumer, the Seagate 600. Now this new solid-state drive here come in a standard 2.5-inch design, similar to that of a normal laptop hard drive and that means it can fit in any laptop or desktop computer physically. Now there's one thing very special about this new drive and that is it comes in the regular 7-mm thick which I have right here and it's also available in the 5-mm thick that I don't have which make me kind of unhappy because I'm so used to having everything, but that's okay because the difference in thickness of the machine of the drive capacity are performance. Most version come in 3 capacity, 120 gigabytes, 240 gigabytes and 480 gigabytes that are slated to offer up to 500 megabytes per second in sequential read and up to 400 megabytes per second in sequential write. The inventor also says it offer up to 80,000 IOPS. According to Seagate the new Seagate 600 Drive is the first solid-state drive that require about the same power consumption as a regular laptop hard drive that spin at 5400 RPM, and that's quite a lot and that means the drive here is probably most suitable for a desktop than for laptop. Now to make up for the fact that they forget to send me the 5-mm thick version of the Seagate 600 Drive, Seagate send me something else and that is the Seagate 600 Pro solid-state drive. Now this drive is very similar to the Seagate 600 but is a lot faster, has longer life endurance, but is also a lot more expensive. Now the question is how expensive is expensive, and I don't know which really make me unhappy because I'm used to knowing everything, but I will soon and so will you if you go read the full review at CNET.com of the Seagate 600 Drive. Now the faster you're going to find the review is follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+ because I'm very fast at posting my content there. I believe that's good for the world and that's because I'm Dong Ngo and this has been a very first look at the very first solid-state drive from Seagate, the Seagate 600 with a hint on the Seagate 600 Pro.
