Seagate Barracuda LP 5900RPM Green SATA 3Gb/s 1TB Hard Drive ST31000520AS Review
10 July 2011
Summary: I’m not sure I would use the Barracuda LP as my main hard drive as it’s a bit slow really. It might not be bad for an HTPC system but still the heat bothers me a bit for that kind of usage. Right now I’m using a green drive in my computer for my automatic backups and that’s where I think this drive would fit perfectly.
The drive does power down when not in use it seems and then power back up very quickly when needed.
Pros: +Green, low power drive, +Large capacity, +Can be SATA 6 gb/s, +Decent speeds
