Seagate ushers in generation changes every year and with each new year the performance of their products increases. Usually we see a gain in one area that trumps all others, but this year Seagate delivered performance and power improvements across the board. In addition to the increased performance and reduced power, Seagate also managed to double the capacity of the Constellation Series, making the Constellation.2 the best 2.5" form factor nearline drive available on the market today.
Seagate has also managed to keep the price of the new Constellation.2 in check and the new drive is being offered at a lower price than its predecessor at the time of launch. We weren't able to find the new Constellation.2 at many etail or retail shops just yet, but that will change over time, and as it does the price will decrease even more. At the time of writing PROVANTAGE listed the lowest price and our Constellation.2 1TB rang in at 206.93. 24 hours before we wrapped the article up it was listed at 216.99, so the prices are already starting to shift in the consumers favor.
