Weird problem in Seagate 7200.10 (SATA) firmware in Hard Disk Drives (HDD) Posted May 24, 2007 · Report reply weird, very weird.I planned to buy a 7200.10 500gb for backup but I may change my mind now. It is still the cheapest of its size but this performance cap really sucks. And the most important aspect of a backup drive is of course performance? Yes but seagate should not reduce the performance because the reputation has been established. Its dishonest.
