Seagate has begun shipping the industry’s first 250GB-per-disc, 3.5-inch disk drive for PCs.

Using perpendicular magnetic recording technology, the Barracuda drive is designed to address the expanding digital content needs of both consumers and businesses.

The Barracuda 7200.10 drive is built with a fast SATA 3Gb/s interface and will serve as the foundation for Seagate’s 1-terabyte desktop, enterprise, consumer electronics and external hard drives.

“Seagate remains focused on leading the hard drive’s pivotal transition to perpendicular recording technology and maintaining our density leadership in order to meet customers’ growing storage capacity and reliability needs,” said Brian Dexheimer, chief sales and marketing officer at Seagate.

Perpendicular recording sees data sets stored vertically on the disk to maximise storage capacity.
