Seagate Announces 2.5GB and 5GB CompactFlash Photo Hard Drives

LAS VEGAS (CES), Jan. 5 -- Seagate, the world's number-one consumer electronics hard drive designer, announced today at CES that the Seagate CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive, with a massive 5GB capacity, begins shipping next month into retail stores across the country. The first 5GB CompactFlash media storage card ever introduced, the Seagate CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive offers unparalleled capacities at cost-effective price points for digital photography hobbyists and professional photographers that shoot and store large volumes of high-resolution digital photos. Available in 2.5GB and 5GB capacities, it's ideal for high-resolution, point-and-shoot and professional digital cameras with a Compact Flash type II media slot. It's also the most cost-effective solution for entertainment, gaming and PDA devices that use Compact Flash Type II media.

The Seagate CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive lets photographers shoot large volumes of high- resolution pictures without changing the card -- this reduces set-up time and extends shoot cycles, which saves photographers valuable time and resources. And its massive 5GB capacity reduces the need to purchase or carry additional storage cards. The 5GB Seagate CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive delivers over 1500 high-resolution (6 megapixel) pictures, or over 4000 standard-resolution pictures (3 megapixel) on a single card.

The Seagate CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive features a worry-free one-year warranty that covers all parts and labor, plus free technical support even after the warranty ends. Ask for this and other Seagate products at major consumer electronics retail, e-tail, and photography shops.
