Seagate really does have the Steve Austin of hard drives on their hands with the Barracuda 7200.10, as it really is better, stronger, faster. Better in terms of the lower noise, and lower heat production provided in part by the implementation of perpendicular recording technology. Stronger thanks to greater shock tolerance and reliability also provided by perpendicular recording technology. And faster as proven by testing. Native Command Queueing, a 3 Gbps SATA interface, 16MB of cache memory, and yes, perpendicular recording technology all chip on that.
…Given the industry leading capacity, incredible performance in testing, and low cost per GB, I award the Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 750GB SATA Hard Drive a final score of five out of five stars and the award of "Highly Recommended".
