Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 120GB Hard Drive
16 June 2007
Conclusion: I feel that this is a very solid hard drive; it runs faster than your standard IDE drive and is basically the same price as its IDE brother. It is very quiet and runs at a reasonable temperature. This will not be the last Seagate hard drive that I purchase.
Summary: Although Native Command Queuing is most definitely an elegant and intelligent way to minimize the impact of a hard drive's mechanical latency, our test results show that better performance certainly isn't guaranteed with the Barracuda 7200.7 NCQ and Promise's FastTrak TX4200.
Summary: At only $95 online for a 120GB drive, the Barracuda 7200.7 is one of the cheapest Serial ATA drives around. "Parallel" ATA versions of the drive are available online for as little as $85, but I'd pay the price premium to get my hands on thin and flexible Serial ATA cables any day.
Conclusion: Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 is a stunning product. Although biggest available storage capacity is only 160GB when some other manufacturers have 250GB drives, performance and silent operation noise raise this new Seagate absolutely one of the best SATA drives available.
Conclusion: The new Barracuda 7200.7 is Seagate's latest attempt to join the ranks of those who have already been flaunting their 80GB per platter technology. It comes in various versions, two of them will be based on the legacy parallel ATA interface and one will be tailored for the new serial ATA technology.
Conclusion: The Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 is certainly looking better than we first thought. The top-of-the-series model with a whopping 160GB capacity is Seagate's fastest SATA drive yet. Compared with the 120GB version, we found a slight increase in performance, particularly in Winbench 99 and HD Tach 2.61.
Conclusion: The new Barracuda 7200.7 is Seagate's latest 80GB per platter drive that aims to give you even more performance than their previous model. True enough, the 80GB per platter density utilized in the Barracuda 7200.7 SATA is perhaps Seagate's fastest 7200RPM desktop drive to date.
Excerpt: Dawno, dawno temu, gdy królowały jeszcze dyskietki 5,25", szczytem marzeń było posiadanie 'twardziela' o pojemności 20 megabajtów. Ach, cóż za cudo to było... Kilka kilogramów żywej wagi, dźwięk traktora... Sukcesywnie, rok po roku, pojemności dysków rosły, a wymiary usystematyzowały się.
Excerpt: Voici le test de la dernière génération de disque dur Seagate grand public, utilisant des nouveaux plateaux de 100 Go. Il sera donc comparé à 2 autres disques durs, les WD Raptor et Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9, histoire de mesurer ses performances.
