Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS 320GB 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive (Perpendicular Recording Technology) Bare Drive

ICON Loading...

With up to 320GB of pure digital storage in a single drive, the Barracuda 7200.10 may be the largest, most reliable disc drive around. New perpendicular recording technology provides vertically stored data bits, enabling increased data density and dependability for workstations and PCs. The hard drive's 3.0Gb/s Serial ATA interface enables the user to connect to, and work with, other systems at a faster speed without any extra effort. The hard disk has a 16MB cache and works at 7200RPM, blowing away the 5400RPM “limit” for large scale hard drives.

Each time your PC is switched on, the Clean Sweep feature will fine-tune your drive, maintaining both media and drive reliability. Adaptive Fly Height maintains the distance between disc head and platter, based on fluctuations in environmental operating conditions. The Seagate SoftSonic Motor facilitates noiseless operations, while the Enhanced G-Force Protection prevents data corruption. In short, you have a set of features designed to ensure that your precious data will stay safe for a long time to come.

4 out of 5 eggsStill running strong after more than seven years in RAID 10 and 0

Pros: Good capacity per dollar for its time. A durable drive that has performed well without error on Windows Server 2003 and 2003 R2, running 7/24 for most of the time.

Cons: At least one of the four drives in my server makes a curious chirping sound once in a while. Despite dire warnings from some reviews on this site and elsewhere, the noise has so far not turned out to be a portent of catastrophic failure. It's just a funny noise. By modern standards these are not fast drives. With my controller in RAID mode the disks are accessed in SATA I mode. However, using RAID 0 and RAID 10 recovers some of the lost performance.

Other Thoughts: I took a risk when I bought these drives, knowing that the perpendicular recording was at the time a new technology. I compounded that by using an Abit P35 Pro motherboard with an onboard Promise controller. Both decisions have turned out to have been good ones. I have recently updated the machine by installing an SSD to use for database work running Linux virtual machines, but the Seagate drives being reviewed here are still going strong after all these years - Longer than I have run any other computer that I have built, and I've been building my own since 1994.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drives

Pros: i bought 4 of these drives to make a Raid5 array for my FreeNAS network storage server in Dec 2006.
They have been running almost continually since then - maybe restarted 2 or 3 times a year.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive.

Pros: DURABLE!
Owned for over 7 years, operated in occasional high heat conditions, ran continuously... and still only 106 bad sectors.
Outlasted a PATA 250GB WD of the same age and a 1.5TB Seagate that was 3-4 years newer... and still running strong.

Cons: Ubuntu has been requesting disks checks often, but not finding any errors. So it might only make it to 8 years... but is that REALLY a con? :P

Other Thoughts: I wish all Seagates were this durable. This is the first SATA drive I ever bought and it's still running very well. My newer Seagate failed last year and I remember them stiffing me on the rebate (wasn't bought on NewEgg, think TD ;-).

5 out of 5 eggs6 Years Later, still going strong

Pros: Very reliable drive. Bought in 2007 and it still works flawlessly to this day. Unfortunately storage capacity needs have grown, and this drive is only 320GB. I wish I bought more of these back then, seeing as drives today tend to be hit or miss....

Cons: None that I can think of. For an older drive this has great speeds and a large cache, plus a large size for a drive being released during the end of the XP days.

Other Thoughts: I would buy again. WD drives seem to fail frequently these days. Hopefully Seagate still has good quality control.

5 out of 5 eggsFrom 10/14/2006 the beat goes on!!!

Pros: Over 6 years, I've put the original two I purchased in multiple Frankenstein systems I've built. Finally about to sell them as I plan on building a brand new rig from the ground up. Completely satisfied happy to part with them knowing how reliable they were for me. Hope to get the same performance out of the two ST2000DM001 that will be replacing them.

Cons: Lack infinite storage capacity :(
