Seagate has introduced a new range of BarraCuda SSDs for the consumer notebook and desktop market. The new STGS2000401 lineup comes in a capacities ranging from 250GB to 2TB. Each of the SSDs come in the standard 2.5-inch size and incorporate SATA 6Gb/s controllers.

Each of the 250GB, 500GB, 1TB and 2TB offers maximum sequential read and write speeds of 540MB/s and 520MB/s, which is in line with their relatively affordable pricing. They have been launched in conjunction with Amazon's Prime Day sales event and are priced at US$74.99 for the 250GB model, US$119.99 for the 500GB model and US$229.99 for the 1TB model. Seagate is also offering a 5-year warranty on the drives as well, which is reassuring.

The drives will become more widely available in September, when we expect to see pricing for all the models made available as well.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
