Seagate Barracuda 2TB SATA 3 Internal Hard Drive
Product Overview
This Seagate ST2000DM001 Barracuda 2TB SATA hard drives gives you the Power of One, one hard drive platform for every desktop storage application and one drive with trusted performance, reliability and simplicity and capacity. This 2TB Seagate Barracuda hard drive also features Seagates '1TB-per-disc' technology that packs 340,000 hard drive tracks into the width of a single inch, this means that, when reading and writing data, the read/write head needs to accurately follow a track that is a mere 75 nanometres wide. That’s about 500 times smaller than the full stop at the end of this sentence.

Double your capacity and drive down costs with up to 1TB-per-disk hard drive technology.

Seagate AcuTrac™ servo technology delivers dependable performance,even with hard drive track widths of only 75 nanometers.
Seagate OptiCache™ technology boosts overall performance by as much as 45%.
Free Seagate DiskWizard™ software allows you to install 3TB and 4TB hard drives in Windows, including XP, without UEFI BIOS.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 79 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2TB Seagate Barracuda 7200 Really hard drives are old school these days with new Ssd and M.2. The thing is there great for the extra storage we require with music and video clip downloads and there relatively cheap for large storage. I definitely think they are worth the money and believe it or not Scan Computers delivered this to me on a Sunday....Yep Sunday. 16 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality drive To me Seagate have always been associated with good quality hard drives and this is no exception, well worth the buy. 09 May 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by These drives have dropped in quality Three years ago i bought 8 of these drives and although one did fail initially the replacement and remaining drives have worked well. However two began to fail recently so decided to get replacements - as three years of hard use in two NAS's is not bad considering they are consumer grade HD. ordered two of these as replacements - unfortunately they both began to fail almost immediately. OK you can be unlucky - so i RMA'd them and their replacements arrived quickly. Unfortunately they did not get past an initial disk test with Seagate SeaTools So that is 7 out of 13 drives that have now failed over three years - hmmm Ho hum off to Western Digital i will go..... 13 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Trusted As a video editor I use lots of hard drives, these particular ones are the most reliable / longest life drives I have used (I've got boxes of failed Lacie and Maxtor ones!) 11 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by All good, excellent Scan service as always. Bought to replace a failed 3TB from the same series which had lasted 3 years. Let's see how these go. 23 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fast ,quiet HDD makes a good data drive to pair with a smaller SSD The 2Tb Seagate 7200rpm is quiet and reasonably fast hard drive that I purchased to replace an aging Samsung Eco 1Tb drive. I have been using the drive for the past month and have had no problems with it's operation. Simply put it is faster and quieter than my previous HDD and whilst I cannot say how it performs as an OS drive, it seems perfectly capable of it's duties as my Steam game and media drive. 22 March 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Two failed in the first week Seagate are famous for drive failures, I have 17 seagate drives, two brand new ones failed within the first week. Seagate returns are pretty easy to complete, thankfully. 21 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Reasonably priced capacity and speed Scans delivery and packaging was brilliant as usual. Generally a good product. Already have one of these which is already 3 years strong. This new drive makes a bit of a clunky sound quite often - a little annoying although thus far it seems ok. If I was storing critical system files on it I would probably send it back. Ran CrystalDiskMark and the speeds are fine. Seagate are known to have higher failure rates than alternative brands. If you're looking for a drive to keep important system files or your OS, I would look into more reliable drives or at least keep regular backups. 02 March 2016

Answer: 
I wouldn't suppose it would matter a great deal, obviously a sata 3 type but the performance variance would be minimal, cosmetic and manufacturing differences may be a factor though so my advice it to get one from a manufacturer you know/trust, failing that get the shiny ones, everybody loves shiny things.

Answer: 
You need a serial ATA SATA cable.
Generally you connect the smaller SATA cable to the hard drive and the power supply needs to connect into the other ATA slot with my experience of installing this.

Answer: 
SATA cable chice depends on your computer. They are all pretty cheap. Almost certainly a 90cm Scan SATA Cable Straight to Straight (Scan Code LN33894, 95p each!) will be fine. This has "Locking Latches" which is a nice bonus as without the latch the plug can come loose while fiddling in the PC case. But you can buy cables with right-angled connectors too, or shorter cables. Buy what suits you best - or buy a selection - you can't go far wrong at the price!

Answer: 
Hi I've just posted a review which probable answers most of your questions. I initially thought that resource hungry games like World of Warcraft were best installed on an SSD (solid state drive), but I found that installing them directly onto this hard drive, caused no noticeable loss in performance at all, and also saved space on my SSD which is only 120GB in comparison.

My experience of this drive has been good. It probably also helps to have a good quality power supply, which helps to protect your components from any surges in power etc - I use a corsair HX 850 Watt , which I bought from Scan. It comes with a 7 year manufacturer warranty which is a good indication of the quality. Hope that helps.

Answer: 
I have had several WD blacks. Bought one of these and it was doa. Would not format and would disappear from device manager once formatting failed.

As for their performance, they are supposed to be right up there with the WDs and quieter. Howver, i have a feeling failure rate is a lot higher and build quality may not be as good. Running 3 WD blacks in different machines for 3 years getting constant use and no problems or errors reported at all. If I hadnt made the mistake of getting this I would have stuck with the WD Black.

Answer: 
For gaming on a budget and secondary drive, these are fine. For performance, then you should consider a 960GB SSD or secondly an WD Enterprise drive for reliability. The WD black are fast, but can be prone to failure too and sometimes are unjustifiable for the price. I hope this helps.

SATA 2 or 3 Mb

How recent is SATA 3? I have a workstation a few years old that needs some additional storage. I assume it's SATA 2. I have no plans to build a new PC so apart from future proofing drive usability is there any point in buying a couple of these?

Answers

Answer: 
This drive will be fine in older SATA-2 supporting computers as SATA-3 is backwards compatible with 2. SATA-2 is much lower speed but this will not be a concern that you will experience with a HDD, only something you would notice with an Solid State Drive.

SATA III specifications provide backward compatibility to function on SATA I and SATA II ports. However, the maximum speed of the drive will be slower due to the lower speed limitations of the port.

Answer: 
SATA 3 is backwards compatible. So you won't have any issues. However, I would not recommend these Seagate drives for mission critical data as they are not as reliable as an enterprise class drive. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
Check on your motherboards manual or on the web. Even if it is not SATA 3 compatible, you would likely not see much of a performance increase if any on a regular 7200RPM hard disk like this.

SATA 2 has max speeds of 300MB/s - still faster than the drive.
SATA 3 has speeds of 600MB/s.

Answer: 
SATA 3 Drives have a read speed of approx 6Mb/s whereas SATA 1 & 2 drives are only 3Mb/s as you can imagine much slower than the 3's.

The problem you have is where SATA 3's are backward compatible if your machine is only a 1 or 2 SATA then you'll only be reading at the 3Mb/s speed but it does mean they should last longer in theory.

Compatible with PS4?

Hi there,

Is this hard drive compatible with the Playstation 4 and is it faster that the stock hard drive in the PS4?

I'm looking for a good upgrade from the standard PS4 500gb hard drive and wondered if this was the best choice?

Answer: 
Sorry, this drive is not compatible with a PS4 because it is 3.5 inch and the PS4 requires a 2.5". Hope this helps, thanks.

Answer: 
The ST2000DM001 is to large for the PS4 (3.5"). Look into getting a 2.5" drive. For example:

Number of platters

Is this the 2 x 1TB platter version of the drive, or the 3 x 666GB platter version of the drive?

Answer: 
It says in the description - This 2TB Seagate Barracuda hard drive also features Seagates '1TB-per-disc' technology that packs 340,000 hard drive tracks into the width of a single inch.

So that would make it the 2x1TB platter version :-)

Answer: 
There seems to be another way to determine the platter count of an ST2000DM001 - by looking at the third character of the serial number. An 'E' seems to point to a two-platter unit. An 'F' seems to mark a three-platter one. Mine was an E - two platter. I think its hit and miss. Good luck.
