With the influx of inexpensive and reliable Serial ATA hard disks and hardware SATA RAID controllers (which can provide excellent performance at a fraction of a SCSI’s price), it’s not surprising to see why legacy SCSI doesn’t even enter the mind of enterprise server and workstation platform buyers, even those...

  • Summary: To say that the Barracuda ES.2's performance is disappointing would be an understatement. In fact, we were so surprised by the drive's scores in some tests that we contacted Seagate to see what was up. It's been a couple of weeks since, and they're still looking into it. Meanwhile, the ES.2 is , compelling us to share our results. Those results largely speak for themselves.

20 March 2002
  • Summary: Barracuda 36ES2 features very fast mechanics, a rather dense platter, excellent linear read graph, andfast and smart interface. One more distinctive feature of this HDD is its noiselessness. The solutionis targeted for computers that work with video and "heavy" applications or low-end servers.

  • Conclusion: Barracuda ES jest oznaczeniem serii dysków twardych przeznaczonych do ciężkiej, ciągłej pracy w profesjonalnych serwerach i macierzach. Cała seria składa się z czterech modeli różniących się przede wszystkim liczbą talerzy. Na jednym mieści się 250 GB i taką pojemność ma najmniejszy napęd. W kolejnych rośnie liczba talerzy aż do czterech i właśnie tyle ma ich testowany egzemplarz, największy z serii.
  • Pros: Krótki czas dostępu, Niezła obsługa multimediów
  • Cons: Przeciętna wydajność, Spore zużycie energii, Hałaśliwość
