The Seagate Barracuda 7200 12 1TB 7200RPM Serial ATA III has the Seagate’s OptiCache technology which is known for boosting the general performance of the latest innovation. The Seagate AcuTrac servo technology, on the other hand, is made to deliver steadfast performance.
It has the 7,200 RPM spindle speed, an interface option of SATA 3Gb/s NCQ, and the 12th generation of the most popular desktop hard drive. Top that with the technology coming from the Seagate Smart Align in which the simplistic and transparent migration into the Advanced Format 4K sectors is given. Through the 1TB per disc concept, you can be totally assured that for the price you paid, you get something equally, if not greatly, more productive.

You may somewhat notice that the Seagate Barracuda 7200 12TB 7200RPM can perform even as fast as the Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB. However, in comparison to the WD, the latter is proven to run and perform in a quieter way. It’s as if it is made to work really silently that you will never feel its rotation or vibration. On the other hand, the barracuda has the noticeable vibration sound most apparent on its "roaring" part of sound spectrum.
Some of the experienced buyers can’t help but brag on how this hard drive has made it possible to watch movies simultaneously through 3 computers even across the 100mb network. That is done using only one particular drive. You can also add another drive through a 4th computer. This inexpensive hard drive is a fantastic mass storage and as a drive firmware, it has the ability to install pretty effortlessly. For those who use several virtual machines, the Seagate Barracuda 7200 12 1TB 7200RPM will most probably make a great addition.
On the bad side, you might find yourself stuck with a version that is just too noisy to bear. The longevity rate is also quite poor and at the worst case scenario can last for just a week. Nevertheless, when it comes to plugging and playing the device and saving files to it at your heart’s content, you can never go wrong.
There are still those who can attest to the fact that the Barracuda can work pretty amazingly. Even those who are avid gamers and are very much attached to their media interface love it. They say that you can get the barracuda turned on and off constantly throughout the day and still see how it 351191_Sworks and performs at its best. Others also add that you can use it for several years and be absolutely assured that it will not skip a beat or fail.
Streaming high definition videos is possible and can already be done wirelessly. Overall, this is a wonderful hard disk drive that can store large files. What you can expect from it, on the bad side, is that due to the lot of capacity it has, you might have certain inconveniences when defragmenting the disk, or detecting error scans.
