By: Jon Coulter | RAID in Storage | Posted: Nov 19, 2013 2:31 pm

Specifications, Pricing and Availability




Seagate's 600 series is available in three capacity sizes - 120GB, 240GB and 480GB. Specifications list the 240GB 600 series SSD as capable of exceeding 500 MB/s sequential reads and exceeding 400 MB/s sequential writes. Random read/write speed is listed at up to 80,000/70,000 IOPS at 4K QD32. The 600 series is available in 7mm or 5mm z-height configurations.


Seagate backs the 240GB 600 series SSD with an industry standard limited three year warranty. The 240GB drives we are looking at today are warranted for a maximum of 73 terabytes of data written to the device during a three year period. The 240GB Seagate 600 is currently available from Amazon for $193 (80 cents per GB).


Since this is a RAID article, we are going to focus on performance rather than features. For a more in-depth look at the Seagate 600 series feature set, I will refer you to Chris Ramseyer's extensive review of the Seagate 600 240GB .


Now let's see what kind of performance we can squeeze from a pair of Seagate's latest SSDs in RAID 0.
