The Seagate 750 GB Barracuda does as well as, or better than, the competition, even against SCSI and RAID drives. With this much storage and speed, this drive might render SCSI and RAID obsolete.

Conclusion
Performance, Quality, Reliability and Storage is what you will get from the Seagate 750 GB Barracuda SATA 3.0 GB/s 7200.10. This hard drive can hold multiple family videos, MP3s and games; it’s the perfect addition to anyone’s system. Compatibility is not an issue since it is reversible to SATA 150 from SATA 300 and fits in your 3.5” hard drive bay. Since Seagate has mastered perpendicular recording, this drive should be more reliable than drives of the past. On a final note, since I don’t have a decimeter, I was not able to truly record the total decibels of the hard drive. One would think that since it is of such a large capacity it would be much louder than a hard drive with less storage capacity. In a side-by-side comparison the Seagate Barracuda was no louder than my 200GB Maxtor Hard Drive.

I am very impressed with the Seagate 750 GB Barracuda SATA 3.0 GB/s 7200.10. I’m almost at a loss for words. My opinion, “buy it, it’s worth every penny!”

Pros

  • 750 GB of Storage
  • SATA 150 and 300
  • Perpendicular Recording (less moving parts)
  • @ 7200 rpm it will out run a 10,000 Raptor

Cons

  • None at all
