Solid state drives are the way of the future, hard drives are just too damn slow. Thus, Seagate brings you its new 2.5-inch Barracuda SATA SSD. While Seagate’s current line of Firecuda drives are an HDD and SSD hybrid of sorts, creating a hard drive that can be sped up with SSD tech for frequently accessed data, the Barracuda is a bona fide solid state drive that can get the job done.
The Barracuda SSD delivers high read and write speeds of 560 MB/s and 540 MB/s respectively and will also come in a variety of storage capacities ranging from 250 Gb to 2 TB. The SATA connection ensures that this drive is as compatible as possible, not just for PCs, but for laptops as well. The drive also has a low-power mode for reduced power consumption. If you’re worried about the drive crapping out on you, don’t. Every drive has a 5-year warranty on it.
These drives will become available for purchase on Amazon Prime day, July 16. The full price list is below:
- BarraCuda SSD 250GB – £74.99 / 75 USD
- BarraCuda SSD 500GB – £109.99 /119 USD

It should be said, these drives will only be available during Prime day, after that they will become fully available starting in September.
