The 10TB Barracuda Pro takes the top spot at the world’s largest capacity consumer hard drive for desktop users. It is the first consumer hard drive to hit the 10TB mark

The data is crammed onto seven platters, and it has a rotational speed of 7,200rpm,  transfer rate of 220MBps. Impressive for a hard drive, but it’s nothing to write home about when it comes to the performance offered by SSDs.

The drive is also energy-efficient, consuming just 6.8W during seek operations and 4.5W at idle and also comes with a five-year warranty.

 

The 10TB Barracuda Pro has a list price of $534.99. According to Seagate, the drive consumes just 6.8 watts during seek and 4.5 watts during idle
