Seagate Hard Drives

With more and more files these days, having enough storage space is more important than ever. Seagate hard drives are a great solution for that problem, giving you a portable way of keeping all your documents, music, pictures and movies safe and close by.

Types of Seagate Hard Drives

When browsing Seagate hard drives, it is important to know the subtle differences between the types, namely:

  • Hard Disk Drives (HDD): This traditional storage type uses magnetic, rotating disks to store information, which remains unaffected when powered off.
  • Solid State Drives (SSD): Featuring no moving parts, solid state drives have data stored completely electronically and are generally faster, quieter and more reliable.
  • Network Attached Storage (NAS): Not so much a type for home use, network attached storage devices are better suited to server environments where they take on a file storage role.

Hard Drive Features

When looking at all hard drives whether HDD, SSD or NAS, factors to keep in mind include:

  • Internal vs. External: External hard drives are able to be just plugged in, while internal ones act as a fixed hard disk inside your computer.
  • Storage Size: Different models of Seagate HDD have various capacities, often between 1 and 4 TB.
