Seagate Barracuda, SATA 6G, 7200RPM, 3,5 Inch – 2 TB


Green IT is often equated with a lack of performance, because high efficiency is to implement a rule only with reduced power. The HDD specialist Seagate Barracuda now proves the opposite. That this is an economical model is clear. On the other hand, are hard drives not really the power guzzlers in the PC, so that the real savings effect should not be overstated. It is surprising, therefore, rather that the HDD enables despite a percentage significantly lower power consumption a rich data transfer of brutal 210 megabytes per second. Even the fastest drives have problems because follow suit. The Barracuda achieved this dream value at a speed of only 7,200 U / min. Nevertheless, it remains cautious regarding the volume development. The cache falls with 64 megabytes also very large from. With 210 MB / s limit of SATA 2 port is also not far off, but the built-in SATA 6G here not only offers the advantage of higher bandwidth. Because was also the protocol clearly filed, for example, to increase energy efficiency and to optimize the transmission of multiple simultaneous data streams with high bandwidth. Overall, Seagate therefore constricts very attractive package – the Barracuda is very economical, quiet and at the same time very fast, even in comparison HDDs with many other manufacturers. So convinced Green IT not only the mind but also the heart.
