At Seagate there is a competitor in segment 1.5 TB HDD

The company Seagate for a long time was the sole leader in terms of capacity offered in the consumer market Hard Drive.

Now she has found a competitor who suddenly is not WD, Hitachi or Samsung, and the Japanese IO Data, presented a new model, HDI-SAH7, which amounts to half terabyte.

Novelty is equipped with an interface SATAII, spindle rotates at a speed of 7200 rpm.

With dimensions of 101.6 x 147 x 26,1 mm drive weighs 720 grams. Power consumption is 13 Watts.

To gain market novelty IO Data could hamper its price. It is expected that after the debut on the Japanese market, it will be about 290 dollars, while Seagate ST31500341AS is about twice as cheaper.
