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 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.
