Seagate Barracuda 1TB review
10 January 2013
Excerpt: The Seagate Barracuda 1TB is one of the hard disks we often see in OEM PCs. There are good reasons for this: it's cheap and its specs are bang up to date with a SATA3 controller and 7,200rpm spin speed. Specifications don’t necessarily translate into high performance and this low cost disk isn't particularly fast. In our large file write test, it achieved a speed of 105.4MB/s and read the same large files at 113.1MB/s for an average of 109.2MB/s.
Summary: Since having two WD green drives fail on me i just went straight to this because a friend recommended it and I can honestly say hasn't failed and for a gaming pc / media centre its perfect for storage.
