Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

Seagate Barracuda XT 3TB  - PCSTATS.com Seagate Barracuda XT 3TB
Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 4:02PM | Filed under: Hard Drives/SSD| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

"Pricing for the 3TB drive comes in currently at $189, so it is priced competitively in the segment. Considering that a 1TB drive can be had for less than $70, the cost per TB drops with the addition of capacity. Pairing this drive with a Z68 motherboard and a small SSD using Intel's Smart Response technology, would allow both the increased capacity we all want with the responsiveness of an SSD once the technology learns your most used applications. Ultimately, the Seagate Barracuda XT 3TB drive exceeds expectations by delivering a higher level of performance with the extra capacity needed as we progress to ever larger file sizes for our digital media. Higher sustained data flow and an overall improvement in responsiveness are the hallmarks of this drive. Add in a small SSD for some Smart caching on an Intel Z68 based motherboard and you should have the best of both worlds — speed and capacity."
