Hard disk drives are today\'s fastest permanent storage media and have a large capacity. For this two reasons they are the most used storage medium in computers and servers. When buying a new hard disk, there are three important things to consider:\
- The connection of the disk to the computer or other device you will be using it with has a big influence on the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk. Make sure the connection of the disk you buy is compatible with your computer!\
- The rotational speed is also important for the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk and determines the time it takes to find a file on the disk.\
- Last but not least, the storage capacity of the disk, i.e. the amount of data that can be stored on the disk.

After using these drives for over a week I have noticed an increased responsiveness in my system. Games and applications are loading faster; even Windows seems a bit quicker. Then there is the little bit of extra hard drive space that I now have. When...
Lots of changes have taken place in the industry since our last hard drive review: higher aerial density, PATA to SATA interface change, drive manufacturer merger/buyouts, to name a few, so it seemed to be a good time to do another hard drive review. T...
Good Fast, Decent price/performance ratio, Five year warranty (If new)...
Bad Not as quiet as some other drives...
Bottom line Other than the slight noise issue mentioned earlier I have no complaints with the Seagate ST 3500641AS hard drive. While some of you might have concerns about the fact that this hard drive is factory re-certified and not brand new, I havent had any re...
Seagate is a company thats been around for quite a while, but their presence is becoming more and more intact as the days go by. A week doesnt seem to go by without seeing their name in the news. A few months ago, we took a look at their 160GB mobil...
Bottom line Seagate knows what they are doing, because they continue to impress. Its too bad I did not have another S-ATA drive on hand, because it would have been a more accurate comparison, but the Barracuda definitely held its own. Despite coming short in mo...
The factors that influenced PATA desktop hard drive performance could be counted on a few fingers. Rotational speed and data cache were the two main factors, but the advent of Serial ATA has really opened up the door. Now, technologies like NCQ have t...
Good 500GB Capacity, Excellent Performance, 16MB Cache, SATA 3.0 Gb/s & NCQ...
Bad Still Expensive, 750GB is now Top Dog...
Bottom line The Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 hard drives are both very impressive from a performance and features standpoint, but the 300GB model stands out as a superb value at this range, as not only do you get SATA 3.0 Gb/s and NCQ, but also the large 16MB of onbo...
Storage just gets bigger and bigger, but there are some good reasons for that. For one thing, files keep getting bigger as high-definition programming gains popularity. Also, games are commonly installing at 3GB and larger these days as well. Another...
Good 500GB!!! (only takes two for 1TB), Good performance, Less expensive than competition, 5 year warranty!, 16MB cache...
Bad More expensive per gigabyte than smaller capacity 7,200 RPM drives...
Bottom line From what Ive seen on the Web, the 500GB Barracuda 7200.9 isnt the fastest 500GB drive around, but its also not the slowest performer either. Obviously, I didnt have any other companys 500GB drive on hand to see for sure, so you might want to do...
Seagate’s new flagship drive is a case of “one step forward, one step back” as it features an increased buffer size (now at 16MB) compared with the previous generation drive, but a lower areal density, if you can believe that. It features a four-platte...
500GB capacity with plenty of cache...
Seagate was the first hard drive manufacturer to launch a native SATA hard drive with the Barracuda 7200.7 but truth be told it wasn't particularly fast or impressive. The 7200.8 update was the drive that the 7200.7 should have been, and now we have the 7...
Bottom line The question of compatibility overshadows the 7200.9 as we expect that storage should plug in and behave, and the idea that a hard drive may ‘disappear' at any moment is deeply concerning. The 7200.9 is fast, quiet and good value, but its new SATA2.5 feat...
I find my hard drive getting smaller by the day; some of you might have the same feeling. With photos and videos being created daily from my growing family, it is time to look for larger hard drive. Hard drives are becoming a good bargain lately, as lo...
We have already reviewed the successful 500GB hard drives Hitachi Deskstar 7K500 and T7K500. Now its high time to review other products of this capacity. These drives use the latest technologies, and prices are becoming more and more attractive. Besid...
Bottom line Maxtor and Seagate did not allow Hitachi GST to enjoy being the only manufacturer that offers a high-capacity series for long (Deskstar 7K500 series). They have crossed the 500 GB line for a single desktop hard drive using newer technologies (platters...
At my disposal I had three sets of four Seagate Barracuda drives. Representing the 7200.9 era is the ST3250624AS, a 7200rpm 250Gb drive with 16Mb cache and a claimed max sustained transfer rate of 76.6 MB/sec...
I have discussed the perils of storage before. Like with money, the more you get, the more you want! And the storage industry has been all too happy to feed our growing need to stash our digital junk. Personal video players, media PCs, DVRs, and MP3 pl...
The Main Event: Hitachi Vs Seagate Got storage? In a head-to-head contest, find out whos 500GB hard drives will be the new heavyweight champions.
Ever since I can first remember a hard drive has well, pretty much just been a hard drive. Over the past 15 years they have evolved considerably, offering far greater storage capacities and improved speeds. The physical appearance and dimensions of tod...
Bottom line The Barracuda 7200.9 looks to be one of Seagates most impressive hard drive series yet based on what we have just seen from their half a terabyte behemoth. Seagate has been sailing along very smoothly in recent times with their Barracuda 7200.8 being s...
IntroductionWith the announcement and release of Seagates new 160GB 5400.3 2.5" notebook drive, which utilizes the new perpendicular magnetic recording method, we have many questions regarding the performance of these new high density platters being m...
Seagate Here at Techware Labs in the past few months we have had the privilege of examining some of the best, fastest, biggest, and everywhere in-between hard drives on the market today. The best performing hard drive we came across was Western Digi...
Processors are incredibly fast, RAM is rocketing its way through our games, and videocards pack more punch than ever. With all these screamingly fast system components available, often the hard drive is neglected. It?s a commonly known fact that despit...
Five hundred gigs, a five hundred thousand megs, half a terabyte... any way you cut it, Seagates latest should provide plenty of storage.
Bottom line The Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 is a step in the right direction as the extra cache and 3.0Gbps transfer rate will make it more competitive with similar products on the market. The 500GB review drive weve looked at today is not going to win many speed r...
IN THE HARD DRIVE WORLD, capacity is king. Capacity actually comes in two flavors. The first and most obvious is the storage capacity of a hard drive. The second, and potentially more important, is the capacity of individual platters within a drive. Th...
Bottom line First, we should applaud Seagate for integrating all of the Serial ATA 2.5 draft specs standard and optional features across the entire Barracuda 7200.9 line. This move ensures that users will enjoy a common set of features regardless of which drive c...
Seagate 500GB Barracuda 7200.9 Serial ATA Hard DriveSeagate has pushed the capacity of their desktop drives even further with the release of the Barracuda 7200.9 SATA hard drive. Thats half a terabye of storage space in a single drive! The Barracuda 7...
Seagate joins Maxtor and Hitachi in offering a 500 GB hard drive in this era of ever increasing storage capacity. The Barracuda 7200.9 is a 4-platter drive with 16 mb of cache and SATA 2.5 compliance. We take a sample for a spin around our lab.
Bottom line The noise character of the 7200.9 was a bit of a disappointment. The mysterious whine-at-a-distance that only showed up with the drive in certain positions was highly irritating for me, although Mike did not seem to mind it so much. That said, we have...
Taking a look at the burst results honestly made me say "WOW"! The Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 not only outscored the RAID 0 array of SATA 1.5 Gb/s drives, but it also blew away the Hitachi SATA 3 Gb/s 500GB drive by over 20 MB/s. Taking a look at the oth...
IntroductionLast week, Seagate officially announced their 7200.9 desktop hard disk drive line, which brought 3.0Gbps transfer rates, a barrage of SATA features, and a new capacity to bring Seagate to share the top of the mountain with Hitachi. We promi...
Seagates new Barracuda 7200.9 essentially rolls the older 7200.8 and 7200.7 lines into one all-encompassing family that delivers a wide range of capacities available in both the PATA and SATA interfaces. Bumping its design to four platters, Seagate ha...
