  • Conclusion: For sure, the new Seagate 7200.12 series of HDD is significantly faster than its is predecessor, the 7200.11. Upgrading is just worthy and will boost the performance of your PC. You can easily expect a faster reading by 17MB/sec, while writing writing will be even faster.

  • Conclusion: Jak dotąd dwunasta generacja rodziny Barracuda 7200 liczy tylko siedem modeli. Pięć z nich zbudowano w technologii 500 GB na talerz, w pozostałej parze na tej powierzchni zmieści się tylko 320 GB. W konstrukcji serii skorzystano z opcji talerzy obsługiwanych tylko jedną głowicą z jednej strony.
  • Pros: Duża pojemność, Przyzwoita wydajność, Niskie zużycie energii, Umiarkowana cena
  • Cons: Spora głośność
