Be the first on your block with a Terabyte drive. This Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 series drive uses second generation perpendicular recording technology to pack the data in tighter than ever. Not only does this lead to the increased capacity that gives you 1TB of storage it also makes the drive faster and more efficient. Since the data is closer together the read/write heads don’t need to move as far. And if the drive works faster, you work faster.

The SoftSonic motor enables ultra-quiet performance so you don’t have to worry about drive noise distracting you if your system in on your desk. Enhanced G-Force Protection defends against handling damage which is especially useful if you put the drive into an external enclosure, or if you put it in a system that you transport to LAN parties.

Have the biggest Barracuda on the block, and strike "tera" into the hearts of your opponents!

Notorious for Failing 1/19/2016 6:14:57 PM

Pros: Good Paperweight. Seagate Warranty was good at replacing them and then re-replacing them. I've literally had 14 fail on me within a couple years.

Cons: Notorious for Failing within the 5 year warranty. Get the 7200.12 revisions instead.

Overall Review: Would not recommend.

59,000 hours 8/27/2015 6:23:10 AM

Pros: These are pretty good drives overall. They function well have have decent performance.

Cons: Many of these drives suffer from high fly writes and not uncommon to see bad sectors. As with all high capacity drives it is wise to monitor SMART status. Does run hot if not well ventilated.

Overall Review: The drive failed after about 7 years (purchased in 2008) with 59,000 hours on the drive. So I can't hardly complain about the drive, the price, performance or reliability. With large drives it is best practice to either do backups or mirror drives.

Was good while it lasted... 2/12/2013 11:31:24 AM

Pros: This drive was awesome when I got it back in 2008 and the packing was satisfactory. Worked right out of the box without a hitch into an XP system and I was able to transfer a lot of video and music files to it. I only ever used it for storage because I needed the space (I use small drives for my programs). I got it for a good price at the time (I think it was on sale during a holiday) and the transfer/write speeds were really, really nice.

Cons: Well, some time around the middle of 2011 it started developing this click that continued to get louder. The warranty had already expired and the noise freaked me out because I've had drives fail on me before. Thinking the worst, I transferred the data I cared about, swapped it to an enclosure so it could "die" a peaceful death, and put it into retirement. It's 2013 now and it still hasn't quite still has that horrible hanger-noise-on-a-metal-closet-rod/click of death thing going on whenever it reads or writes and it won't format, and while I should just chuck the thing, now I'm curious as to how much longer I can string the thing along! =D

Overall Review: I'm currently looking for a replacement and I'm wavering between another Seagate or a WD...I've used both in the past and I'm currently using both now, so it's a bit of a toss up.

Failed after three years 7/15/2012 2:07:07 PM

Pros: Worked excellent while it lasted, was fast and easy to install windows 7 64 on

Cons: One minor earthquake killed it. The quake was barely big enough to rock the shocks on my car on my way home from a funeral. It merely felt like a little pothole on all four tires at once. I come home and find it dead. Luckily it was still under warenty so I sent it back. I dont think they liked the box I sent it back in. I went to my local computer shop and got a WD box. Lucky for me I had thoughtfully bought an auto backup drive with software so it wasn't as catastrophic as it could have been. Then I installed Windows on a little rinky dink 80 gig IDO that I had and waited.

After two days I was looking online and saw the Western Digital black drive on what rhymes with Guest Guy for $100. I did some research and found it was a very good little 1tb drive so I immediately bought it. Never had a problem since. When the replacement came back I turned it onto a storage drive.

Overall Review: Does not seem to make a good OS drive. It would sometimes pause as if it was busy thinking once I accessed the drive. It was the head resting. I know now that there is a tool that would disable that but I still prefer WD black over this brand. Seagate seems to be only good as backup drives and portables. Never again will I have a Seagate as the home OS drive.
