Inside the Barracuda Pro are eight platters each 1.75 TB in size and comes with a nice addition to the warranty, if the drive dies before two years have expired you can ship the drive to Seagate and they will attempt to recover your data for free.  The Guru of 3D's testing showed the accuracy of the 250MB/sec rating, as expected from a modern SATA HDD. The total warranty is five years and the drive is rated for 24/7 use with a 300TB/yr rating so there are certainly plenty of usages for the drive.

"It's here! We review the Megalodon among the HDDs, the Barracuda Pro 14TB from Seagate is unleashed today, that's a 14.000GB HDD folks! This, by far, is the biggest single consumer unit storage device to date. It might not offer SSD performance, but it certainly isn't slow. It's the year 2018, it's big but with these massive HDD platters, will it be fast enough?"

"the Barracuda Pro 14TB from Seagate is unleashed today, that's a 14.000GB HDD folks". That "." in the 14.000GB has triggered my ocd,I can't stop looking at it. I know it's just a mistake of typing quickly. I'll try my best to just see a comma there instead. 14,000GB, I'm really trying.14,000GB,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, it just isn't working. Next article. I need 4 of these though.
