The 5mm thick Seagate 600 series SATA III SSD is available in three capacity sizes: 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB. Specifications list the 480GB 600 Series SSD as capable of exceeding 500MB/s sequential reads, and exceeding 400MB/s sequential writes.

 

Random read/write speed is listed at up to 80,000/70,000 IOPS, at 4K QD32. A 5mm z-height allows for greater compatibility with newer laptops than any 2.5 inch form factor SATA based SSD upgrade to date.

 

Seagate backs their 600 series SSD's with an industry standard, three year limited warranty. The 480GB Seagate 600 is currently available from Amazon for $341 (71 cents per GB). Since this is a RAID review, we are going to focus on performance rather than features.

 

For a more in-depth look at the Seagate 600's feature set, I will refer you to Chris Ramseyer's extensive review of the Seagate 600 480GB SSD.
