Seagate 6TB Barracuda 5400RPM 256MB Cache Internal Hard Drive – ST6000DM003Green IT is often equated with poor performance because high efficiency
is usually only possible with limited power. The HDD specialist Seagate
proves with the BarraCuda now the opposite. That this is an economical
model, is clear. On the other hand, hard drives are not really the power
guzzlers in the PC, so the real saving effect should not be overstated.
It is therefore rather surprising that the HDD, despite a significantly
lower power consumption percentage, allows a full data transfer of a
respectable 185 megabytes per second. Even the fastest drives have
problems with them. The BarraCuda achieves this dream value with a speed
of 5,400 rpm. Nevertheless, she remains reserved about volume
The BarraCuda is very economical, quiet and at the same time extremely
fast, even in comparison with many HDDs from other manufacturers. So
Green-IT not only convinces the mind, but also the heart.
