Seagate Barracuda XT 2TB SATA3 Hard Drive Review

Futurelooks
23 February 2010
  • Summary: We know you're probably just as confused as we are by the results. Shouldn't the SATA3 drive with 236MB/s Burst Rates be faster? Let us attempt to explain. Hard drives do their best work when coupled with a good Storage Controller.
  • Pros: Massive 2TB capacity, High density platters for more performance, Lower power consumption, 64MB Cache
  • Cons: As it stands: slower than its SATA2 rival, Limited SATA3 supporting controllers

TEST: Seagate Barracuda XT - Rask 2 terabyte-er

PC World
25 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Vi kan med en gang si at Serial ATA 6 Gbps har minimal betydning for ytelsen til en vanlig harddisk. Serial ATA 6 Gbps er imidlertid en teknologi som på sikt vil være viktig for SSD-er.
  • Pros: God ytelse. Kurant støynivå.
  • Cons: 6 Gbps gir minimalt ekstra. Pris.

  • Pros: Nowoczesny interfejs, Duża pojemność, Bardzo dobra wydajność
  • Cons: Spore zużycie energii, Hałaśliwość
