5 June 2013
Excerpt: Ever since the 2TB capacity limit was breached, there have been a large number of 3TB drives that have entered the market. We already tested a few of these – the Seagate Barracuda XT 3TB and WD’s Caviar Green 3TB. The new drives don’t offer the best value for money if you’re looking for that, but we’ve seen some pretty impressive performances coming from them.
Excerpt: The Hitachi Deskstar 7K3000 internal hard disk drive is an entry into the rarefied space of drives that offer three-terabyte (3TB) storage capacity. Other brands in this space include Seagate and Western Digital.

Pros: Stunning performance
Cons: Needs the latest motherboard BIOS technology as a boot drive Price
