The brand new Seagate Barracuda LP (low-power) family is here, designed and built by the desktop performance leader, but with the primary focus on a low-power, cool and quiet drive at an entry-level price. This drive allows users to do more while using less power. The Barracuda LP drives deliver on low-power consumption. But low power no longer means slow power. Benchmark performance results prove the 5900-RPM spin speed advantages (when compared to competitor drives that spin at 5400 RPMs). And these drives are cool and easy on the PC, often requiring fewer fans, a smaller power supply and lower maintenance costs. It’s the definition of energy efficiency.

  • newegg Super-Low Power Consumption The Seagate Barracuda LP (Low Power) hard drive consumes up to 50% less power than standard desktop drives to provide immediate cost savings during operation.
  • newegg Cooler Operation Reduced power consumption and heat generation provide long-lasting benefits to the system, reducing some component and maintenance costs.
  • newegg Sustainable Technology for a Green World The Seagate Barracuda LP (Low Power) hard drive is designed, built and delivered using best-in-class, environmentally friendly processes to better protect the environment.

3 out of 5 eggsLasted awhile

Pros: Good size. Good Price

Cons: Couldnt figure out for the life of me the drive was failing.

Other Thoughts: Ive had this drive for 4 -5 years. I recently had a PSU blow up and unfortunally it damaged the HDD. SMART said the drive was fine but i was getting random BSODs 0x124(General Hardware Error) Since SMART said it was fine i didnt think it was my HDD... Spent over 500 bucks replacing everything and it still crashed... put a 160g drive in and it worked fine...

My Advice... Dont trust SMART status.

2 out of 5 eggsBad

Pros: Large amount of data storage

Cons: Bad transfer rate

Other Thoughts: I have had this hard drive for some time now and I have had to get it replaced once in a three year span so thats not to bad. If you ask me you should invest a little more money into a good hard drive. This hdd has a bad transfer rate and runs hot unless you have good cooling. I don't want to bad mouth the people who make this drive cause having it replaced was a breeze and I am quite sure they have a great line of products. This product is not for me.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo Drives Failed in 6 Months

Pros: One drive lasted a month longer than the other one did. Seagate did replace them.

Cons: Two of these drives, in RAID1, failed in under 6 months. Failure was preceded by lots of errors.

Other Thoughts: Two drives in RAID1, housing part of a photo archive. Usage was not very heavy, not much was ever deleted from the array, mostly written, read once or twice. A similar array with Hitachi drives is doing OK. Both arrays are cooled well, and the machine is never moved.

Replaced by Seagate - failed 3rd time on 11/29

5 out of 5 eggsIt simply works

Pros: Just plugged it into my ReadyNAS duo and it worked. It's totally silent. The ReadyNAS duplicated the other, older Seagate drive in the RAID pair. It runs cooler than the previous generation Barracuda

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Take this from me, you have to have redundancy of your backups. Be sure you get a backup solution and that it has redundancy in the drives.

1 out of 5 eggsFAILURE!!!!

Pros: 1 out of my 3 have worked.

Cons: I own about 10 seagate drives and have never had any problems until I bought this one. I bought two of these and one died in about a month. I got a replacement from seagate and it died within a week. Do not buy this model, other seagate 1TB have worked great for me, but not this model.
