Excellent HDD
Reviewed by Gary Mason. Review Posted 18/02/2012

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.

Seagate 500GB - overall a good buy.
Reviewed by Anonymous Review Posted 05/12/2013

Have used Seagate/Maxtor for 2 decades without any problems so I stick with this make. This disk is one from the latest Seagate range and represents good cash/bytes value. Post was quick and the disc was well packaged in a foam lined box with larger outer box. This is excellent because there are many web complaints about other retailer's poor packaging. Comes with manufacturer's 2 year warranty which is not the case with some other sites. But beware that this disc is not a standard retail boxed item with cable, power adapter and software as might be inferred from the "What's in the box" blurb. It's a disc-only deal - see the "Additional" section towards the bottom of the first page.

7200 HDD, great for a games library
Reviewed by Joshua. Review Posted 09/09/2013

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
Reviewed by Peter. Review Posted 20/05/2013

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!
