    Seagate Barracuda 7200.7

    This is my response from Seagate. The guy that responded to SteveC's request sounds more knowledgable... The support guy never mentioned the difference between a bare-drive and retail kit even though I mentioned that I purchased mine from CompUSA with a box that said 1-year warranty on it. -Shmorq

    Seagate Barracuda 7200.7

    I also got a retail box from CompUSA and it said 1-year warranty on it. I'll have to check the drive with the warranty validator since maybe the box was misprinted. (???) I'll also e-mail Seagate to see what the warranty really is. -Shmorq

    Seagate Barracuda 7200.7

    I just got the 160GB PATA 7200.7 8MB drive and under Intel's Application Accelerator, the option to switch between performance and quiet is not available like my older Barracuda IV. The acoustic setting is defaulted to quiet mode. I don't know why the SATA would have it defaulted to performance. Also, on a side note, the drive came with a 1-year warranty and not a 3-year warranty as said on the review. -Shmorq
