Seagate's Barracuda LP 2TB hard drive

techreport.com
14 October 2009
  • Summary: On paper, the Barracuda LP is a good match for the Caviar Green. Both drives sport four 500GB platters, 32MB caches, sub-7,200-RPM spindle speeds, three-year warranties, and price tags hovering around $200. The two drives even offer comparable performance in a number of our tests. However, the Barracuda boasts faster sequential transfer rates, whether in synthetic tests like HD Tach or in simulated real-world file operations like File Copy Test.

  • Summary: With the LP and the second generation Pipeline HD drives, Seagate offers a solid third choice to consumers looking for quiet, energy efficient hard disks. The three models tested here shine in two areas in particular. Compared to the WD Caviar Green and Samsung EcoGreen series, the Seagates drives run a bit snappier with noticeably higher read speeds and lower random access times (except for the 500GB Pipeline HD .2).

Seagate Barracuda LP 2TB

5 October 2009
  • Excerpt: We haven’t seen a new two-terabyte drive on the market in a while—not since we reviewed the Western Digital Caviar Green in May, in fact—but Seagate has finally added a 2TB drive to its Barracuda LP line of desktop drives. The LP (or low-power) line is Seagate’s “green” offering, equivalent to Western Digital’s GreenPower and Samsung’s EcoDrives.
  • Pros: Among the fastest reads and writes of any high-capacity drive; low power consumption.
  • Cons: You can get two 1TB Barracuda 7200.12s for less than the price of one of these--and they'll be faster.

  • Conclusion: We’ve seen the Barracuda LP 2TB perform at levels that rival our charted 7200 RPM drives and for a drive that just sips at power it has exceeded our expectations for a Green Drive. Most Green Drives operate at 5200 RPM and the 5900 RPM on the Barracuda LP series give it a distinct advantage in transfer speeds.

Seagate Barracuda LP 2TB review

  • Excerpt: The Barracuda LP is the first internal hard disk from Seagate that we've seen that is supposed to be more eco-friendly than other disks. It has a rather unusual spindle speed of 5,900rpm, instead of the more common 5,400rpm or 7,200rpm speed. This spindle speed is supposed to strike a good balance between fast performance and energy efficiency. Although we couldn't test Seagate's power efficiency claims, we did put the Barracuda LP through our tough speed benchmarks.

  • Summary: Konklusjon Vi ble ikke helt overbevist av Seagates bidrag i forrige runde, Barracuda XT , denne gangen sitter vi igjen med en vesentlig bedre smak i munnen. En slik harddisk vil først og fremst brukes til lagring, ikke minst på grunn av kapasiteten. Og til den bruken fremstår Barracuda LP som svært spennende. La oss begynne med prisen. I skrivende stund koster Barracuda LP 2 TB godt under 900 kroner, eller 0,44 kroner per GB.

Seagate ST32000542AS

  • Conclusion: Barracuda LP jest oznaczeniem serii energooszczędnych dysków twardych. Zostały skonstruowane z myślą o przeznaczenu do komputerów PC oraz niewielkich pamięci masowych do małych biur i zastosowań domowych. Mniejsze zużycie energii, mniejszą emisję hałasu jak i niższą temperaturę pracy uzyskuje się przede wszystkim dzięki obniżeniu prędkości obrotowej talerzy z 7200 do 5900 obr./minutę. W założeniu to przyhamowanie nie powinno mieć negatywnego wpływu na wydajność.
  • Pros: Niewielkie zużycie energii, Przyzwoita wydajność
  • Cons: Wyższa cena gigabajta
