Seagate's New Barracuda XT 3TB

Overclockers Club has a review of Seagate's New Barracuda XT 3TB posted today for those of you interested. The OCC crew seemed very impressed with this drive, giving it high marks all the way around.

In just about every test the "New" Barracuda XT outperformed the previous generation product. Higher average transfer rates and reduced access times mean an improved feel once you are in the operating system. The drive specification sheet shows a sustained read speed specification of 156MB/s, which the drive exceeded in my testing. This makes the New Barracuda XT the fastest spindle based drive I have tested to date, giving you capacity and speed all in one package.
