Seagate Cheetah X15K.6 Hard Drive

Traditional hard disk storage is living on borrowed time. We know it and storage manufacturers know it. Solid state drives, which use non-volatile memory chips instead of rotating metal discs for storing data, are simply a better medium in the long run. They consume less power, create nearly zero heat, and produce no noise – but best of all, there are no moving parts to wear out over time. The technology and prices aren’t quite there yet, but it’s only a matter of time. Take a quick look through any tech-oriented forum and you will likely run into folks proclaiming the death of traditional platter based storage. For the most part, they're right - but there is a twist to the story as platter based storage manufacturers are fighting back.

There is still plenty of life in traditional storage technologies, and Seagate is out to prove that with their newly launched Cheetah X15K.6 hard drives which feature 170 MB/s+ read / write speeds. Head on over to the site and check them out...

Very Nice. Still a little pricey considering I could get over 5TB for the same price.

Great speed though.

seems a little loud for my taste -- 36db idle ?? C'mon -- speed is great but not if you can't hear yourself think over a HDD

Yes.  If nothing else, they will take the place of backup tapes - since they're still cheaper high capacity storage for the foreseeable future.
