Seagate's 1.5TB Barracuda: Bigger And Better?

Transfer Rates And Diagrams

The new 1.5 TB Barracuda 7200.11 is the fastest 3.5” hard drive available, reaching almost 130 MB/s of throughput. However, its performance isn’t as high in other benchmarks, which are often dominated by the Western Digital RE3 drive. The latter drive “only” reaches 110 MB/s throughput, but it dominates access time and I/O performance tests.
