Seagate Barracuda LP ST32000542AS 2 TB: a good HDD
4 October 2011
Summary: I bought this hard drive when I was doing my custom PC a matter of months ago, I went with Seagate as they are a well-known company for their hard drives and so thought they would be fairly reliable. I was quite pleased with what I got as in comparison to in my previous PC the hard drive I had no got worked like a dream.
Summary: Three years ago I decided to upgrade the harddrive in my desktop as I was running out of space only my old 100g drive. I plumped for the Seagate 500gb hard drive due to the many reviews that I had read that praised it for its reliability and quietness. True to form the drive did not disappoint. I had been used to my old drive clunking away but the noise from this one is barely audible and it appears to kick out a lot less heat than my previous drive.
Summary: I have always been partial to Seagate products ever since my bad experience of dead on arrival hard drives from Wester Digital and Samsung. My trust in Seagate is not unfounded or misplaced, they have delivered reliability and performance hard drives with their range of products. I used to run this as a backup secondary drive to store photos, music and videos.

Pros: Холодный. дешевый. довольно быстрый.
Cons: Часто произвольно рекалибруется, не выходит из слипа, долго определяется системой, на третий год сдох.
