If you are specifically looking for a 2TB Hard Drive, the Barracuda is both a solid performer and offers reasonable value for money. That said, It probably makes more sense to go for the 3TB version which, thanks to economies of scale, represents significantly better value for money. With the 3TB Barracuda you get 50% more storage and approximately the same performance for just 20% more money. [Sep '13 HDrivePro]

Seagate AcuTrac™ technology maximises HDD storage densities...

Terrible

3 months ago.

The drive after just two years and ONE month so one month after warranty has expired has "Uncorrectable Errors" - there is no possibility to write files on the hard drive. After doing a chkdsk it did start to work however from the SMART report it doesn't look good and the drive fails to pass Seagate Tools tests.


Poor

Good (but variable) performance, can't wait for it to fail with no warning.


Excellent

Die ST2000DM001 und die ST3000DM001 sind meiner Meinung nach die besten Festplatten (hätte es nicht gedacht). Beste Kombi überhaupt! SSD 120gb + 2tb/3tb HD als "D: Platte" für den Rest!
