Save the planet, buy a hard drive? Recently, Seagate sent out a press release about their new environmental friendly "low power" hard drives. These new "LP" hard drives are suppose to reduce the power cost over the life of the system by as much as 50%. The LP drives are considered "green" because Seagate says that "typically 70% of these hard drives can be recycled". I'm not what you would call an environmental activist and my carbon footprint is probably the size of Texas, but if there is a product out there that can help me save money while delivering the same amount of performance, then I'm all for it. On the other hand, I will not sacrifice system performance to save a buck no more than I will I park my 350 horsepower SUV to drive a 20 horsepower electric mini. Call me a spoiled American, but I would have to say that the majority of computer enthusiasts feel the same way. We like our power and speed and we are not about to give that up. So with that said, let us take a closer look at the Barracuda LP to see if this GREEN hard drive is worth our GREEN dollars.
