Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Expert Review

If there was some sort of moment of blissful balance that existed for hard drives, then surely the Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM HDD has found that balance. The idea of a sub-$100 hard drive with a ton of storage, a decently fast speed, and excellent reviews is where we find the Barracuda, and it's pretty much the best balance you can get for your budget hard drive. With a huge 2TB capacity for its price, you'd think you would have to compromise and get a 5900RPM platter speed. Instead, this drive offers everything: 7200RPM speed, 64MB cache, and even retail packaging. If you're looking for the best on a budget, this drive will have what you want.Rating: 5/5
