Seagate Technology today announced it has shipped over 1.5 million U Series hard drives since volume production began in June.

According to Seagate, the U Series, which ships with up to 80 Gbytes on just two platters, shipped more units in its first month of production than any drive in Seagate's history.

"Seagate has shipped more than 60 million U Series drives, making it the most popular drive program within the industry, and Seagate has more than doubled its market share in the 5,400-rpm hard drive market since the first quarter of 1999," said Dave Reinsel, research manager at IDC. "The new U Series 80 Gbyte is a noteworthy addition for Seagate because it represents more than just a follow-on program within the popular U Series. Being first to ship a next-generation product allows a hard drive vendor the best opportunity to capture as much value as possible. Seagate's execution in this product generation is helping them do that."
