The 2TB Barracuda Desktop Hard Drive from Seagate is an internal bare drive with a 2.0TB storage capacity. This amount of storage provides the necessary space to store large files, as well as a variety of multimedia content. The Barracuda hard drive serves a variety of purposes including desktop or all-in-one PCs, home servers, PC-based gaming systems, desktop RAID configurations, direct-attached external storage devices (DAS), and network-attached storage devices (NAS).

The 6Gb/s SATA revision 3.0 interface allows for native hot swapping and faster data transfers, when compared to the previous SATA revision 2.0, through higher signaling rates while the 64MB cache ensures uninterrupted data transfer. With the 7200 RPM spindle speed, the time it takes to read and write data is greatly improved over the previous 5400 RPM standard. Reliability and data integrity are also a major area of concern with most hard drives, as a result the Barracuda hard drives come with 300,000 load/unload cycles, an annualized failure rate of <1% and up to 2,400 power on hours. Each of these characteristics of the Barracuda hard drives helps to provide piece of mind your data will remain safe and secure.

1TB/disk 7200 RPM platform provides affordable capacity
Seagate OptiCache technology improves performance by up to 45%
Seagate AcuTrac Technology enables reliable read/write performance even in high touch operating environments
Seagate SmartAlign technology for no-hassle transition to Advanced Format 4K sector technology

      We're using them to download huge uncompressed 4:4:4 video files shot on a Sony F3 and recorded to SSD's on a Convergent Designs Gemini Recorder.
      We transfer to them through an eSATA xfer station and are getting good throughput.
      To date, we've filled about 16 -2TB drives with uncompressed video footage and they've been fast and robust and reliable. (I expect we'll go through another 16 - 2TB drives before we wrap.)

      We're shooting between 1 & 2 TBs a day and downloading the SSD's from the camera to the Barracuda's, which are working flawlessly, through Macbook Pro and Windows Laptops.

      Have had many Seagates over the years (10+) had one fail, soon after powering up. So for me that's a 10% overall fail rate. Then there was the Barracuda problems and firmware issues of 5 or so years ago. Then they bought up other lesser drivew makers, and moved most of their R&D and engineering out of Minneapolis, where it had been for 40+ years. Had very good performance for the money. Seems to be a business on the down swing though lately. The biggest problem is the shrinking warranty. Was 5 years for the retail version just 3-5 years ago, since it's been knocked down from 5, to 3, to 2, to 1 year now! I think they know something we don't. Such a shame, they used to be the king, never even considered buying anything else. My last drive was a 7.2k 2TB Toshiba and I love it, super quiet and energy effiecent, and it at least has a 3 year warranty.

        An excellent price for adding more storage of virtual machines using an esata dock for fast data transfers and hot swappability. With each new drive I also get a StoraDrive anti-static case by Newer Technology. It's a great way to manage multiple hard drives.

              Bought a 2TB Baraccuda drive. About 9 months later it failed (clicking noise then startup then stop and more clicking noises). Seagate sent me a replacement refurbished drive under warranty. It failed after 1 week. Seagate sent me a replacement new drive under warranty. It didn't work straight out of the box. I must be the unluckiest person in the universe or Seagate quality has become non-existent.

                                I've purchased several of these drives for use in an external thunderbolt drive chassis. I use them for professional video editing. The perform very well. I've had no issues with them at all. Plus, B&H consistently has the lowest price I can find. Very pleased with these drives and will continue to buy them as needed.

                                        Got this one as a direct replacement for a failed unit, so it fit perfect.
                                        I like the low sound level of the drive since it is in a soundstudio
                                        Installed quick, and system restore went quickly, not having to resize partitions. Only time will determine life expectancy here, but for now cool temperature and quiet meet the requirements plus you can not beat the B&H Prices and service

                                            Bought a bunch of these for archival backups of video projects. So far so good. I spin them up every couples of months to keep them moving. Good speeds.

                                                Great capacity
                                                So far, I have had no problems with it.
                                                I upgraded from a 500gb to this one by cloning the older one.
                                                Running smoothly.

                                                After fighting with extreme slowness for data write/transfers/interaction, swapping of 3 motherboards, and other components. I determined the WD green drive,(yuck)was the problem. I read the reviews on this drive first and then B&H beat the competition as usual when it comes to price.

                                                As a Sr. Network Administrator I, like most others in the same field tend to want a specific and precise answer for trouble shooting. So when I read the negative reviews of this hard drive. I felt like the people complaining did not have a complete and detailed understanding of what they were doing. Therfore, they posted a negative review. Or least the trouble shooting was not truly listed showing "why" they thought the drive was bad. Others, unfortunately received a bad hard drive. It happens on ALL products and if mine was DOA. I would have just replaced it.

                                                The shipping was smooth and quick from B&H. This drive was simple to install the SATA connections as usual. The pc fired up immediately, the drive performed flawlessly, and I was suprised how quickly Win7 Ultimate 64-bit was installed on a 2TB drive.It is then I suddenly realized I love Seagate products and do not like WD much. What makes this product great is Seagates support, reliability, and customer service. Also, you guys should know by now this is listed as "bare bones". This means it does not come with SATA cables or anything else.
