Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 160 GB: Pefect for any new-build

aaronphil, Dooyoo
24 July 2009
  • Summary: So you need a hard drive for your system because either your previous one broke or you need one for your new-build. This cheapo offering from Seagate may just be the ideal HD to get you started. This already came inbuilt with my system but seeing as I've got it I may as well review it. This hard drive is very low capacity by today's standards but for me who just want a gaming machine and nothing else this is ideal.
  • Pros: Low noise and great RPM
  • Cons: Not necessarily big enough for everybody

  • Excerpt: "So you have SATA and need a drive? This drive maybe for you, especially if you are looking at RAID in the future. These drives are now below £40 so three or four in RAID will give you the speed of a WD Raptor for less than the price of one!! The SATA gives you 150MB/S whereas normal Parallel ATA is way below that, also you will be able to feel the difference as the computer runs a lot faster as you have reduced one of the serious sub-system bottlenecks. ...
  • Pros: Cheap and fast spindle speed
  • Cons: More space

  • Excerpt: "...the serial number into the seagate website i found out i was eligible for 3 years warranty which was expected on a hard drive like this. It runs at 43 degrees celcius idle which is fairly warm but not the worst ive seen by a long shot I got absolutely nothing included with this hard drive. Except the padding in the brown cardboard box Installation and formatting was a breeze. It cost me £60 (free delivery) halfway through 2004 (no idea ...

  • Excerpt: "...Western Digital and Hitachi. Seagate have to be the only manufacturer who has never let me down and offer completely silent computer usage. I found the Western Digital drive to be very noisy. After buying one of these hard drives sometime ago for my main machine I decided again to purchase another one for another machine in the house. As stated the hard drives never make a sound and both offer high speed and stability. I never suffered any data ...

  • Excerpt: "...definately reccommend this drive and Seagate generally. The support they offer is also excellent. On their website (seagate.com) they offer a lot of support. There are automatic tools for installing your drive, diagnosing problems, data recovery tools and much else. I haven't needed any of this so far, but they strike me as being a very good company with excellent support services. This can be very important if you do have any trouble. I should ...
  • Pros: Quality make .  Cost .

Seagate ST3160023A Barracuda

Dazza_Wyc..., Ciao
13 July 2005
  • Excerpt: "...decided to go for the Seagate ST3160023A Barracuda. The main reasons for going for this model are it have a spin speed of 7200 and an 8 mb Cache and for a HDD to be as quiet as this one is has to be heard to be believed. The HDD is 160GB and you would have thought that it would have been expensive but I paid £55.00 from Savastore.com but it is available from many online stores inc ebuyer and Misco for aroung the £55.00 mark. But probably ...
  • Pros: Fast 7200rpm, Quiet and very well priced with a 5 year warranty .
  • Cons: None

  • Excerpt: "Torn between Seagate and Maxtor decided to pay that little bit extra for this little beauty(about £60 from Simply with free delivery) as additional storage for my PC as my Maxtor 40GB drive was struggling with only 10Mb left!!!! Installed using Seagates Web support and was so simple, you just log onto their site type in the details of the drive, it tells you which port to install it in then it automatically shuts down the computer leaving you all ...
  • Pros: So easy to install
  • Cons: no skrews, and no jumper to select master or slave !
