The 2.5-inch form factor SSD drive is 7 millimeters thick and employs a standard SATA III connector. Seagate offers the BarraCuda SSD in in four capacities: 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB. According to the manufacturer, the BarraCuda SSD delivers sequential read and write speeds of 540 MB/s and 520 MB/s. It's also equipped with a special flash-speed function that boosts its performance up to 560 MB/s and 90,000 IOPS.

A little late to the game, the prices I seen aren't any better than anyone else?

That's the thing with SSD. Everyone makes them and are all within the same spec's. I think Samsung is priced the highest.

The Evo's get put on sale all the time, and with a 5 year warranty just like the pros now its the best bang for the buck on ssd's?

Samsung 500GB 860 EVO SATA III 2.5 Internal MZ-76E500B/AM

Re: Seagate Grows BarraCuda Family With New SSD

I'm going to be in the market for a 1TB soon. Most are around the $229 mark last I checked. Seagate and western digital drives are also 5 year warranty

I'm going to wait until the back to school sale and hope for a good deal on a 1TB or even a 2TB drive.
