seagate barracuda IV 60GB 7200rpm ata 100



Im thinking about getting this drive: Seagate Barracuda4 ST360021A (60G 7200rpm ATA100 2M with Hydrolic Baring ( Quite and Cool )). Ive heard good reviews. Any opinions from anyone who has it or has used it?
I'm using the 60gig Seagate Barracuda, it's a great drive....
Thanks guys. AlecStaar.........i really dont need a 100GB drive.....(i already have a 34 gig). Its really not worth the extra $185 cdn
the seagate is $205cdn and the WD is $390 for something that I really dont need
I'm running a Seagate Barracuda 80GB. No problems so far.
It's fast, and it's ultra quiet.
Hi Yes I have used this drive and its very fast!
Too fast for RAID say Seagate!!!

good choice
I was going to buy 2 40gig versions of this drivefor RAID. In the end I went with the new Maxtor HDD's. Reason is that for RAID, latenc becomes more important and the Seagates have a high latency compared to other drives.

I don't remember where I heard it, but there was some major issue between the HighPoint HPT370 controller and some Seagate drives in RAID that resulted in slow-ass performance.
I thought I might mention that to ya, especially if you're using an Abit RAID board. ;)
similar set up...60gig Seagate Barracuda as my C: system drive and twin Maxtor 40gigs (7200rpm) on a Promise FastTrack RAID great.....
ive actually decided on the 80GB seagate drive. Im gonna pick it up today.....i dont need the extra space but $70cdn exta for 20 more GB is too hard to pass up. Im tempted to get the WD1000BBSe....but i think im gonna pass( im too cheap). Thanks for your input guys

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
