Targeted at applications ranging from consumer electronics to laptops, PCs, servers and corporate data centres, the series includes the world's first 1in. 5GB hard disk, solutions in 2.5in. and 3.5in. form factors, Serial ATA, Serial Attached SCSI and fibre channel interfaces, speeds up to 15,000rpm and storage capacities up to 500GB..."</i><br /><br /><img src="http://www.digitalmediathoughts.com/images/seagate.jpg" /> <br /><br />You have to admire a company that releases such an impressive barrage of new hard drive products. We mentioned the 5 GB microdrive earlier, but a 500 GB drive? I don't see a mention of a 500 GB drive in the press release, so maybe BIOS Magazine knows something we don't...;-)

BIOS magazine provided me with this quote from the Seagate press release that was unpublished:

"Seagate NL35 Series disc drives provide a new solution for enterprise customers by offering a lower-cost, high-capacity disc drive with a Fibre Channel interface. The NL35 drive is ideally suited for existing or new Fibre Channel-based infrastructures in data-backup applications, near-line storage or for bulk storage of non-mission critical data. The NL35 Series is the industry's first hard drive offered in capacities up to 500GB to handle a range of bulk storage needs."
