Giblets: Seagate’s new 4TB 3.5″ drives are out this month

Last week Seagate  quietly launched some new 4TB hard drives and they’ve already begun popping up on Newegg and Amazon. While we’ve had 4TB drives for a while, these are composed of four 1TB platters and rotated at 7200RPM, faster than the older versions which had more platters with 750GB on each one and a 5600RPM rotational speed. Sequential writes to the drive will be as high as 146MB/s and it runs on the SATA 3 interface. Seagate quotes a price of $190 and since this is a quiet launch, I expect most regions around the world already have this available.
