Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 SATA review
17 February 2005
Excerpt: Seagate's Barracuda 7200.7 SATA proved itself to be the most versatile SATA hard disk in this group. In our sustained transfer tests it proved itself to be competent - if not remarkable - coming in as the second fastest SATA drive, and sitting in the middle of the table overall. Its burst speed of just over 105MB/s is some way behind the other SATA drives, but still well ahead of the disks which use the ageing IDE interface.
Excerpt: Seagate's Barracuda 7200.7 Plus shares much of its name and design with the Barracuda 7200.7 SATA. It's just as impressive technically as its SATA sibling, but its strengths and weaknesses are surprisingly different. The 7200.7 SATA excelled in our seek time test, but was a little slower during longer, sustained file transfers. This IDE model's performance is the opposite. Its seek time of 15.2ms is some way off the pace, but the Maxtor's results are far worse.
