Seagate 1.5 TB

It seems the 1TB mark has been broken at last and Seagate is first in line. I’m always happy when they make higher capacity drives, but it seems there are a few drawbacks regarding this new hard drive from Seagate. First off the bat it runs a little hotter then most drives, when other 1TB drives run at 29-34C, this drive runs at low 40s. Then there is the case of speed, it does have 32MB Cache which is needed for something of that size, but its a bit on the slow side. Overall I think its good progress but I’m going to wait for some more reviews a few people have said that this is a casual drive and not something to be used all day long. But for the price its really a great bargain for the amount of space.

  1. One more draw back: some motherboards might not recognize the entire 1.5TB
