Check out these quotes from Seagate Barracuda XT reviews & previews
"Based on the current condition of the desktop storage sector, it's still very much a hard drive heavy world. While SSD technology will undoubtedly replace HDDs one day, there's no speculation as to when, if ever, a Solid State Drive can match capacity and price with a hard drive counterpart. The 2TB Seagate Barracuda XT Hard Drive ST32000641AS resists the tide of change for at least a while longer, and the ultra-high two-Terabyte capacity paired to future-proof SATA 6GBps compliance will certainly help punctuate this. The affordable cost to capacity ratio puts the Barracuda XT ahead of SSDs by a long-shot, while the impressive bandwidth performance speeds still most other 'enthusiast' desktop Hard Disk Drive storage solution available. For storage-hungry gamers and performance enthusiasts wanting performance and high-capacity storage, the Seagate Barracuda XT is an exceptional drive with plenty of value."
"Based on the current condition of today's desktop storage market, it's still very much a hard drive friendly world. While SSD technology will eventually replace hard disk storage some day, there's no evidence as to when solid state storage can match capacity at the same price point. The 3TB Seagate Barracuda XT Hard Drive ST33000651AS resists that forthcoming change for at least a while longer, and its massive three-Terabyte capacity paired to the future-proof SATA 6Gb/s interface will certainly help punctuate this. The affordable cost to capacity ratio puts the Barracuda XT ahead of SSDs by a long-shot, while still offering respectable bandwidth performance speeds for enthusiast computer systems."
"The Seagate Barracuda XT gives good performance on both Sata 2 and Sata 3 and is the first of what is sure to be a long line of Sata 3 drives. It's not the Speed we had hoped for but when does expectation ever meet reality. With speeds hovering in the above 100MB/s range in benchmarks the Barracuda XT is a fast drive and the 64MB cache isn't going to hurt anyone's feelings. In all it's a very capable drive and with 2TB of storage it's not going to cramp your style when it comes to media or games."
"All together, the excellent software bundle, the superior performance, and generous warranty make the Barracuda XT 3TB the best choice among the mechanical drives on the market."
"We were expecting Seagate Barracuda XT 2 TB to smash its main competitor, Western Digital Caviar Black 2 TB, because of the use of the new SATA-600 interface, but this didn’t happen: both achieved the same performance level. In fact, Western Digital Caviar Black 2 TB achieved a somewhat lower access time; so if you are looking for a fast 2 TB hard drive, Western Digital Caviar Black 2 TB has a little bit of an advantage."
