Seagate 600 SSD

 

The Seagate 600 is the manufacturer's first consumer solid-state device, and it's a great first effort with some unique features.

Good price/performance ratio relative to its primary competition

Significantly cheaper, albeit lower performing, drives are available

Just a few years ago, it seemed unlikely that Seagate would ever release an SSD. The company's outspoken CEO, Bill Watkins, roundly dismissed solid state drives in 2008 and 2009, even going so far as to imply Seagate would file lawsuits against upstart...

It can boot into windows 7

I just got this drive today. My macbook will not recognize it using a usb tool. I am a computer technician and I do this all of the time. Boot Camp recognized the drive but Windows always said the drive was "Not Ready." I tried it in a standalone PC...

Great for AMD based systems

 

I've used 3 different brands of SSD's (Intel, crucial & seagate) on this AMD based rig & found that the Seagate SSD performs better on a AMD based rig. I used CrystalDiskMark to benchmark each SSD (separately) & the Seagate SSD had the better numbers....
