7200 HDD, great for a games library

Joshua, dabs.com
9 September 2013
  • Summary: The only way I can fault the barracuda is noise levels, when you're booting something up on this drive the moving mechanical parts will create noise. Maybe more so than it's rivals, but the great thing is, it is an affordable 7200 RPM HDD that is reliable. If you can pay a premium for a Western Digital Black, then that should be considered too, but for the price these Barracudas are unbeatable.

  • Summary: I have never been a Seagate fan. I have had to get warranty replacement HDDs almost every 6 months for laptops that came OEM. So time will tell how long this one lasts!
