Increased data density means higher performance, better reliability and lower costs per gigabyte of storage. Note: Seagate ships this drive in both 4K- and 512 byte sectors. SmartAlign technology is included on 4K sector drives. Both drives are functionally and physically equivalent.

Do you have you a question about the Seagate Barracuda 500GB Hard Drive?

Q: My current HDD has 512byte sectors and the disk copy software I have will NOT work with 4096byte sectors. Are these HDD both 512/4096 bytes or are there separate models depending on sector size? Desktop is Acer Aspire XC600. Thanks.
Answer by Website User on 9th June 2015
According to Seagate's spec sheet, this model has 4096 byte physical sectors which are then emulated as 512 byte. -Danlevan

Q: Is this compatible with a Dell XPS 210? There are 3 holes on each side of my current hard drive (a Seagate Barracuda 7200.10) which are approximately 6cm and 4.3cm apart into which clips from the fan casing fit to hold the drive in place, are these present on this product?
Answer by Website User on 2nd June 2014
Yes, this drive will have all the standard mounting holes of the 3.5 inch hard drive and would externally match the drive you currently have. -Danlevan

Q: Is it possible to fit this to replace an IDE HDD? If it is, which cables/kit would you recommend to complete the installation? Many thanks.
Answer by CCL on 19th December 2012
This is possible, although you would need an adapter and the transfer speed would be limited to SATA I (150MBps). Startech do an excellent adapter which you can find by using our search box to find "CAB0574". -MR

Had my PS3 from day one back in March 2007 60GB version and now the hard drive is genittg full. So with this in mind I upgraded to this drive and I don't know why I didn't do it sooner! Before you install the new drive make sure you backup your old drive first to an external drive if you want to keep your data ie. downloaded games, addons, save data etc. etc. The changer over could not be easier pop the cover off the side and one blue screw to undo then slide the drive out easy, well this part was the 4 screws that was holding the original drive in were that tight (over tightened as the cradle was bent at these points) that I managed to get two out with not rounding the pozi drive heads the other two I had to drill the heads off to free the drive from the cradle not fun but I have done this lots of time in my job. With the new drive fitted in the cradle slide back in to place and remember to fit the blue screw and side plate back on. Turn on the PS3 and straight away it finds the new drive and formats it to the PS3 system reboot the system and away you go (At first it did not find the drive after formatting it had to hard reset then it was fine) Then just restore your data from you back up and its like it was before the swap over only with a lot more space now sign up for a Playstation Plus account and enjoy loads of new stuff. One more thing I don't know if its just me but it feels faster loading data from this drive might just be because its a clean install. Hope this helps fellow PS3 owners its well worth doing.
