Seagate Archive 8TB HDD




Our sample of the 8TB Archive HDD came in bare drive form. Capacity is listed to the left under the Archive HDD branding.





The drive's SATA power and data connectors are lined up appropriately for hot swap drive trays.




Here we look at the drive with the PCB removed, the bottom left houses a row of spring pins where the PCB connects, while the center carries three contacts for the drives motor.




Above, we have the PCB removed from the drive where we get a look at the LSI controller in the center, followed by 128MB of Samsung DRAM for the cache and Smooth motor driver.
