Excellent HDD

I have been buying Seagate drives for 15+ years and have only ever had one fail but it was 3 1/2yrs old they are generally excellent drives this is my second Seagate 500GB Barracuda the previous drive I put into my Sky+HD box which also works a treat. Im only giving it 4 stars for value for money as I feel in general HDD's are still a bit over price. Performance wise you can't go to wrong.

7200 HDD, great for a games library

The only way I can fault the barracuda is noise levels, when you're booting something up on this drive the moving mechanical parts will create noise. Maybe more so than it's rivals, but the great thing is, it is an affordable 7200 RPM HDD that is reliable. If you can pay a premium for a Western Digital Black, then that should be considered too, but for the price these Barracudas are unbeatable.

Hmmmm

OK, this is a decent enough drive. It runs decently fast - about as fast as a 7200 RPM 5.25" HD should run. I bought it to replace a 5-y.o. Western Digital Green HD which was beginning to give me some concern.

But - it hums. At 120Hz, so it's an insidious hum which isn't a multiple of UK mains hum, so it stands out from normal domestic background noise. I've attached Acoustifeet to my PC's case, and that seems to have mitigated the issue a little.

I should have known. I have a Maxtor external drive (with a Seagate drive inside) and it hums too. Western Digital again next time!
