Seagate’s first shingled hard drives now shipping: 8TB for just $260

Seagate 8TB SMR drive
Seagate, using its new shingled magnetic recording (SMR) technology to cram more data into fewer platters, is preparing to launch an 8TB hard drive priced at just $260. For that low-low price (just over 3 cents per gig!) you get a three-year warranty and very low power consumption -- but certainly not performance. This 8TB drive is all about long-term storage and backups -- pair it with a new SSD and you'd have a very flexible, cost-effective storage setup.
