     About the Barracuda 180
     The Barracuda 180's best-in-class specifications are focused on
 maintaining Seagate's high levels of quality and reliability, important
 factors when storing business-critical information.  The Barracuda 180 has a
 low idle power consumption rating of less than 10.3 watts and also
 incorporates a low acoustic rating of 3.7 Bels -- making it the quietest
 half-height disc drive ever.  The Barracuda 180 is currently available in the
 Ultra160 SCSI interface with a 2-Gbytes-per-second Fibre Channel model
 available at a later date.  Additionally, the Barracuda 180 incorporates an
 exclusive Rotational Vibration Protection System that monitors and reduces or
 eliminates any possible head positioning errors resulting from rotational
 vibration within a server cabinet or mounting system.  The Barracuda 180, like
 all of Seagate's high-end enterprise-class drives, includes a full 5-year
 warranty as well as a Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) rating of
 1,200,000 hours.
