Seagate today took the wraps off of its latest BarraCuda storage drive for enthusiast PC builders. The SSD is offered up in four storage capacities, and is launching exclusively on Amazon (to start, at least) at $79.99 for Prime Day.
In terms of raw specs, Seagate says that the BarraCuda SSD can perform at read speeds of up to 560MB/s and write speeds of 520MB/s over a 6Gb/s interface. Capacities start out at 250GB, but there are options ranging all the way up to two 2TB. And to sweeten the deal, Seagate is including a 5-year warranty, should you run into any issues.
It's not the fastest storage you can get your hands on, but the BarraCuda SSD should be suitably speedy for most uses. Seagate is timing the drive's launch for Amazon Prime Day, with small discounts available for Prime members. At standard pricing, you're looking at $79.99 for the 250GB model, $129.99 for 500GB, and $249.99 for 1TB. The 2TB option isn't currently listed, so it's unclear how much it will cost. The drive will be generally available outside of Amazon starting in September.
