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 5900RPM spin speed advantages (when compared to competitor drives that spin at 5400RPM). 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.

Any product with a 38% 1-out-of-5 rating score doesn't deserve to be marketed

Pros: A very expensive paper weight?

Cons: Using Hard Disk Sentinel, I was able to determine that this drive is trash after only several hours of operation. Windows 10 Disk Management cannot reinitialize it either. I cannot get it to reformat in an external case either.

Use in a DNS 321 NAS

Pros: Reliable
Low cost

Cons: Slow

Overall Review: I used two of these drives in a DNS-321 NAS drive for 5-6 years. First drive finally when bad a couple weeks ago. Given the poor ventalation in the DNS-321, the lifespan of this drive exceeded my expectations. My only criticism is that the drive is a bit slow, but this is as expected given the specs...

Update the firmware to prevent "click of death" failure

Pros: Runs cool

Cons: Unreliable. One drive was DOA. The other drive and the first one's replacement began to click and become progressively slower until becoming unusable. This was with occasional use as a backup drive. A firmware update solved this issue, but left me unwilling to purchase any more of these.

Good Product

Pros: No issues

Cons: Slower than most hard drives

Overall Review: I used this in my parents pc and it was a great value for only about 50 dollars for 1.5 Tb of storage. It is only a 5900 RPM hard drive though so it's slower than most other drives but my parents haven't said anything about it being to slow for them.

4 year old drive did me well

Pros: lots of storage. cheap.

Cons: after almost 4 years, she finally kicked the dust. crazy thing though is my other 3 drives, which are MUCH older (IDE drives. its an old system) are still kickin. They also all 3 happen to be western digitals as well. think i just might go with them for my next one.

Overall Review: can still access, but i'm getting the click of death. still works somewhat as i'm transferring over some things i want to keep, but other than that its just full of old movies i will probably never watch again. luckily no super important data on there. it has served its purpose.

also somewhat of a worthless review, considering i'm sure this thing is LOOONG discontinued lol
