(.11 series If I'm not mistaken) But current generation is quite good actually.. (.12 series) Baracuda and Caviar Blue are not much different, both are good drives.. But WD comes with Acronise Backup Apps could be a good addition if u will use it a lot... for seagate they are cheap and available almost everywhere.... The thing is, u might wanna select the factory that made the HDD (China, Thailand, Malaysia, etc...) some region produce better disc than other region... m 0 l Related resources Segate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB VS WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB - Forum Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB VS WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB - Forum segate barracuda or wd caviar blue for gaming??? - Forum 2TB Seagate Barracuda or 1TB WD caviar blue. - Forum Caviar Black vs Caviar Blue vs Seagate Barracuda 1TB - Forum Can't find your answer ?
