Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB

maximum pc
7 July 2009
  • Excerpt: It was a big month for storage. Not only did Western Digital bring to the market the first 2TB consumer hard drive, but Seagate came to the game with another milestone: a two-platter 1TB drive. Both offerings contain 500GB platters, the highest platter density yet achieved. The Barracuda 7200.12 1TB is the first drive we’ve tested from the 12th generation of Seagate’s 7,200rpm Barracuda line, and it’s Seagate’s best chance for a fresh start following the firmware issues...
  • Pros: First two-platter 1TB drive; wicked-fast. Beats previous contender easily.
  • Cons: Somewhat high MSRP; higher random-access writes than expected.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 Review

6 April 2009
  • Conclusion: The Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 is an interesting product. Its performance is a mixed with different benchmarks when we compare to the last generation of the Barracuda family. The hard drive’s burst rate is much slower than the last generation of hard drive and even most of the 1TB hard drives on the market. In addition, its read performance lags behind the 7200.11 but its write performance is a bit better than the last generation of the drive.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB

15 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Last month we reviewed Seagate’s 7200.12 series 500GB drive (model number ST3500410AS).  While performance wasn’t earth-shattering, we found that it’s an incredibly good value drive.  Today we’re reviewing the 1TB model in the 7200.12 line-up (model number ST31000528AS).

Seagate's Barracuda 7200.12 hard drive

1 March 2009
  • Summary: The world's first terabyte hard drive hit the market less than two years ago. Back then, it took five 200GB platters to hit the 1TB mark. Today, Seagate's Barracuda 7200.12 gets there with just two 500GB platters. And the latest 'cuda makes good use of its reduced platter count, enjoying the noise and power consumption benefits that come with spinning fewer discs.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB review

24 June 2009
  • Excerpt: A 1TB internal hard disk may not seem very exciting now that 1.5TB and 2TB disks are available. However, Seagate's 1TB Barracuda 7200.12 uses just two 500GB platters, whereas other 1TB disks typically use three 333GB platters. Squeezing more data on to fewer platters, known as increasing data density, is one of the main ways in which manufacturers increase both capacity and performance.

  • 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. In addition, the 7200.11 series, is less noisy and produces less heat, even at full load.

Seagate ST31000528AS

21 December 2010
  • 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. Po jednym takim talerzu mają modele 160 i 250 GB. Najciekawiej rozwiązano tę łamigłowkę w dysku o pojemności 750 GB.
  • Pros: Duża pojemność, Przyzwoita wydajność, Niskie zużycie energii, Umiarkowana cena
  • Cons: Spora głośność
