CES 2019: Seagate Releases Several New External HDDs / SSDs

THE Seagate, the world leader in data solutions, today announced an extension of its product portfolio at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019. Let's take a look at the news some of them using the LaCie brand, which belongs to the company.

LaCie Mobile Drive

LaCie Mobile Drive has a hard drive within an aluminum frame available in two colors (moon silver or space gray), with capacities of 1TB, 2TB, 4TB or 5TB.

Data transfer is via a USB-C or USB-A 3.0 cable and the drives, depending on the storage size chosen, can be 10mm or 20mm thick.

LaCie Mobile SSD

For those looking for more performance and less noise, this is the best option after all, the SSD is here to stay and the HDD only has space because of the prohibitive prices of the sturdier SSDs.

Available in 500GB, 1TB and 2TB capacities, the LaCie Mobile SSD achieves transfer speeds of up to 540MB / s. Here, the only color option is space gray and the design is still aluminum, with the same connectivity (USB-C and USB-A 3.0).

Both Mobile Drive and Mobile SSD will be launched in January and feature a unique diamond-cut design that complements the look and color of MacBooks (Air / Pro). Both also come with a three-year warranty, while Mobile SSD also has a three-year subscription to the Seagate Rescue Data Recovery service.

Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Touch, Backup Plus Slim and Backup Plus Portable

The Seagate Plus line has three models. Plus Ultra Touch has earned its name because it is covered in fabric. It comes in black or white, with 1TB ($ 90) and 2TB ($ 110) storage capacities, offering automatic backup, 256-bit AES hardware encryption and multi-folder synchronization.

Plus Slim (1TB and 2TB) and Plus Portable (4TB and 5TB) have black, blue or silver aluminum finish. All offer USB-C and USB 3.0 connectivity. In addition, all new Plus models come with a two-month complimentary subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud photography plan.

FireCuda 510 SSD

The FireCuda 510 is a 1TB and 2TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD that offers sequential read and write speeds of 3,450MB / s and 3,200MB / s, respectively. It comes with SeaTools, enabling drive integrity and performance monitoring, as well as easy firmware and software upgrades.

BarraCuda 510 SSD

BarraCuda 510 differs from FireCuda 510 in two ways: capacity (only two models, 256GB and 512GB) and write speed (while reading is at 3,400MB / s, recording limited to 2,100MB / s). It should be launched in the spring of the northern hemisphere.

IronWolf 110 SSD

Finally, we have the IronWolf 110 SSD, which is being presented as the world's first SSD for NAS devices (Network Attached Storage). The 2.5 inch drive will be available in capacities ranging from 240GB to 3.8TB and uses a SATA connection.

There are still no details of when he will be released, nor of his price; We know, however, that IronWolf (as well as the two SSDs above) has a five-year warranty. In addition, it comes with two years of Rescue data recovery services.
