Seagate has been one of the top hard drive manufacturers for as long as I can remember. In the current age, with the ever growing emphasis on protecting the earth, most hardware manufacturers are making their product line with RoHS in mind. In the past few years more products have also been accompanied by the word “green”, with manufacturers boasting that their product is better for the environment.
