For over a year now, we've been asking for just three things in a desktop hard drive: 7,200rpm speed, 4TB capacity, and 1TB per platter. That's all we've asked for, and we don't think we're being unreasonable, since all we want is...

Seagate has been hard at work over the last few months, and now that Computex is over, we are beginning to see products launch left and right from the storage giant. The Desktop HDD .15 launched in April of this year, and takes storage capacity to...

As I pointed out at the beginning of this review, large capacity mechanical hard drives are still an integral part of the ideal storage solution. Ideally you want an SSD for your operating system and applications but, capacity is going to cost you an...

Seagate's 3TB Barracuda is a good performer and it provides a lot of space in a single hard disk package. We also found it to be a relatively cool and quiet performer. It will work best as a secondary drive in a typical PC, but a motherboard with a...

Hitachi recently started shipping a pair of 4 TB hard drives. We can see that they're pretty expensive, but how do they compare to existing 3 TB models in other ways? It’s time for a comprehensive overview of today's high-capacity hard drive...

The above real world tests show that despite the incredible transfer speeds thanks to higher density platters, the Seagate Barracuda 3TB is still limited by the harsh realities of life: 7,200RPM hard drives with relatively tiny cache just cannot hope...

The Barracuda 3TB displayed a few splashes of read-speed brilliance and matched up decently with the other similarly-spec’d drives in our tests. Taken as a whole, the differences between the three best performers were relatively small, although...

Throughout our tests, the Seagate Barracuda 3 TB exhibited a very good level of performance, beating both the comparison drives in almost all of the tests.In CrystalDiskMark, the Barracuda 3 TB showed the best level of performance in the Sequential...

The Seagate Barracuda 3TB hard drive beat out all 7200 RPM models in our overall performance index, topped only by the 10,000 RPM WD VelociRaptor 600GB. It excelled mainly in the file copy and application sections, particularly in tests that dealt...

The new 3TB Barracuda drive is able to yield a 10-15% gain over the old Barracuda XT. As our tests show, the new drive excels in the sequential read and write. However, the drive is a bit slower in the random write compare to the older drive. We...

Going into the testing I was not sure that going to 1TB platters would offer up any additional gains in performance on a spindle based mechanical hard drive. Seagate has worked some magic inside the confines of that metal box that really drive...

Seagate has largely done well with the 1TB platter iteration of the 3TB Barracuda. While not an immediate jump forward in overall hard drive capacity, this is still a significant proof point in the marketplace and Seagate should be commended for...

Platter density has been the crutch of hard drive makers in recent history. Increasing spindle speeds can reduce random access latency, but at the expense of cost and thermals. Improvements in random access performance via increasing spindle speed...

Since time began, man has looked at four- and five-platter 3TB hard drives and dared to say, “That’s cool, but when will we get hard drives with one terabyte per platter?” Man is impossible to please. Nevertheless, drive makers have...
