The Brand Name says it all. It's the Barracuda, so for the price, I cannot fault it. Being 2TB, I can get a lot of video stuff on there for assessment, as well as loads and loads of Hi Res photos. Of course it's only 5400 RPM, so not blisteringly fast, but does not need to be for me. Have always found Seagate drives to be as good as any other make, and more reliable than some! The last thing I want is corrupt data. Would recommend the product to anyone.
