A few years after its creation, Seagate began to expand by acquiring other hard drive manufacturing companies. In 1989, Seagate purchased Control Data’s hard drive business, which at the time was producing hard disk drives under the name Imprimis. Seven years after this acquisition, Seagate struck again and purchased Conner Peripherals, another hard disk drive manufacturer. Finally, in 2006, Seagate acquired Maxtor which at the time was the third largest manufacturer of hard drives.

As one of the leaders in hard drive manufacturing, Seagate offers a variety of internal hard drive products for desktop personal computers and laptops. Products for personal and business use are available.

Seagate hard disk drives for desktops are perfect for mainstream personal computers as well as high performance personal computers, gaming computers, workstations, RAID setups, and low cost servers. The Seagate lines in this category are the Barracuda drives and the Maxtor DiamondMax. Seagate also addresses the ever popular laptop market with their Momentus line of internal hard disk drives.

Seagate external hard drives are very versatile and a number of options are available. The FreeAgent Desktop and portable external drives are great for storing all types of files from photos to music and more. For home office or small office backup applications, the Seagate Replica external drive is ideal. To expand the storage capacity of a PC, the Expansion Hard Drives provide the ideal solution.
