Testing:

To test the Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB drive I will be running a series of benchmarks designed to test the performance under different situations. I will be comparing the scores between a number of other drives to give you an idea on where it sits with current competition. For a direct comparison I added a Western Digital WD20EARS Advanced Format drive with the same capacity. I also threw in a few other drives including the Seagate Momentus XT hybrid drive, a SandForce controlled SSD and my default test drive which is a Seagate 7200.11 750GB drive. All hardware remained at the same speeds, timings and voltages to keep any outside variables from interfering with the numbers.
