Conclusion: I recently bought an "open" 2TB Seagate internal hard drive from PC Mall. It was installed into a Dell XPS One desktop and replaced a Seagate Barracuda 320GB SATA drive. The new "opened Box" 2TB drive is very fast and accurate. It has allowed me to perform programs at a very fast rate. I am very happy with this product and would recommened it without any reservations.
Conclusion: At the onset of this review, I pretty much had myself convinced that there was going to be little to gain from the increased bandwidth of the new SATA 3 bus with this drive. Time and time again we have seen bandwidth speeds increase, while other factors creep in to negate any real world benefits. In our briefing from Seagate, we were even told that initial results were promising but not mind-boggling.
Summary: Nach vier Jahren Nutzung und nur 320 GB Speicherplatz sollte mal was Neues her. Nun gibt es ja Festplatten wie Sand am Meer und Speicherplatz satt, aber doch erhebliche Unterschiede bei den Modellen. Meine oberste Priorität lag dabei auf der Performance. So war der Kauf einer HDD mit SATA 3 Anschluss die naheliegende Entscheidung. Mal wieder einige Tage im Netz verbracht und dann viel die Entscheidung.
