2x 1TB Black or 7200.12: If seagate is $68 less, is it a good deal? Tags: Hard Drives Reviews Seagate Storage Last response: August 26, 2010 1:32 AM in Storage Share Anonymous a b G Storage August 25, 2010 10:29:21 PM Hello, I know that almost everyone suggests the Black Caviars, but if I was to get 2x 1TB drives, and the 7200.12 would cost $63 less, is that a good deal or no? I think the only reason it's priced lower because you need to update the firmware to get a boost in performance. Reviews say it's cooler and quieter. Why don't people like it? I read reviews for black and some people said it failed shortly, and same for seagate. Please advice thank you.
