This drive can be used as a combined system and storage drive thanks to its fast 7200K rpm and enormous 3TB capacity. Recently prices for all large drives have been dropping and the 3TB Barracuda 7200.14 is currently a good choice in terms of both value for money and performance. Not only does the Barracuda have respectable sequential read/write speeds but it also goes head to head with the various green options, consuming a very reasonable 5.4W vs 5W (idle) on average for a "green" drive. That amounts to a tiny power consumption disadvantage and a lot more speed. Overall the Barracuda is priced aggressively and represents very good value for money. [Oct '12 HDrivePro]

Even though mine is still alive and working it is showing signs of failure. There are several bad sectors and the Bios no longer picks it up, I'm having to plug it in after the computer is logged into windows just to get it to show, up. Try playing a movie or game and randomly you will crash as it hits those bad sectors. Seagate recommended updating the firmware but if you can't get it to show up in Bios you can't attempt to scan and fix bad sectors or upgrade the firmware. Avoid This Hard Drive. They were designed to fail

This is currently the best value large hard drive you can buy. It even beats the excellent Hitachi Deskstar 7K3000, primarily on price (by about 30%) but also on several benchmarks including sequential write speed. Seagate have really raised the bar by delivering phenomenal specs at a very reasonable price point. None of the competition even comes close.

Slow not worth the price... Especially you can get the Toshiba P300 3TB for less. Don't be stupid people.


Excellent

Die ST3000DM001 und die kleine Schwester mit 2 TB (ST3000DM001) sind meiner Meinung nach die besten Festplatten (hätte es nicht gedacht). Nutze zur Zeit auch noch die neue 2TB - SSHD ST2000DX001 die noch ein Tick schneller ist als die beiden, ob sich aber der Wechsel lohnt wenn man schon einer Barracuda drin hat, kann ich nicht bestätigen. Beste Kombi überhaupt - z.B: SSD 120gb (Marke egal, Samsung ist super, aber Kingston reicht auch) + 2tb/3tb HD als "D: Platte" für den Rest! Gruß, Tom
