I bought this hard drive for my new PC. As I wanted alot of storage space, so, I bought this hard drive. I was in need of such high storage capacity because I do some graphics stuff and also I wanted some space for my movie collection.
This hard drive has a spindle speed of 7200 rpm, which is common to other Seagate Barracuda hard drives. This is the mainly used speed for a hard drive now adays.
This hard drive supports SATA-300 interface. Due to this it can transfer data at a very high speed. It also has a cache buffer of 16 MB, which helps in enhancing its performance. It support Native Command Queuing, which is mainly useful in server systems.
This hard drive boosts excellent seek time and transfer rates. It heats up a bit, so, proper air cooling is necessary. Noise is not a problem with this hard drive.
One thing to notice is that it is a little expensive, so, you will have to save queit a bit before buying this hard drive.
If price is not a problem, I recommend this hard drive for potential buyers.
