It's Big: Seagate's new 750 GB Hard Drive

Holy Moly. This thing is big. The largest desktop hard disk drive to date, the the 750 GB Seagate hard disk drive has pushed data storage to unprecdented levels. Part of Barracuda 7200.10 series, the 3.5-inch 750 Hard disk drive is capable of pushing data at the speed of 3.0Gb/sec and has three new features; 'Adaptive Fly Height', 'Clean Sweep' and a automatic bad sector scan.

The Adaptive Fly height technology is kind of like 'self raising shock absorbers for cars'; the drive monitors the temperature of the environment, and accordingly raising or decreasing the height of the read-write head inside the hard disk for optimum operation and performance. Clean Sweep on the other hand polishes and cleans the hard disk media at every power-on. The automatic bad sector scan activates automatically when the drive remains idle for some time and scans & marks bad sectors on the drive with out the need for 'Scandisk' or any other disk utility. Since it happens and requires no user-intervention it is also more effective. > Read more
