where is 120GB model?

Honestly, I wouldn't buy a 120GB SSD. It's enough for a Windows 10 install and a few applications, but 120GB will fill up quickly.

 

I would imagine that's the main reason for companies dropping it from their lineups.

Yep, this. It's just like when 64GBs FINALLY went out of style. Only reason I went with a 120GB for my laptop is one, I don't do much on it and two, I got it for like 35 bucks and I was broke at the time.


If you haven't held a SNES controller before, you don't know gaming.

well okay that's not entirely true but still go play a fucking SNES if you haven't.

Apparently, it's cos they're starting off with limited production and they're gonna ramp up production later.

@seagate_surfer Great to see you guys entering the consumer SSD market... But did you really have to carry on the "Barracuda" branding for it? New product line up should have a new name. Doesn't make much sense to me sharing product family names for your HDDs and your SSDs. There's plenty more fish in the sea you could have named it after.

Hello Spotty,

 

I cannot share further details but I can tell you that there are more SSDs to come! The name BarraCuda for this series is pretty much to label the drive with a name that can be recognized by the market as the series that is usually asked to deliver and it does deliver as much as possible to end users at the lowest possible price, as well as his older brother.
