The server version of Seagate's consumer-oriented Barracuda 7200.10 brings the highest-ever capacity to the enterprise market. StorageReview takes a look to see how the 750 GB monster compares to offerings from Hitachi, Maxtor, and WD.

Wow... performance is surprisingly good (which is to say, still underwhelming) for a Seagate drive.

I think four of these may go into my next harddisk upgrade...

I've put 16 of these drives into a client's Escalade RAID array.

As you would expect performance is good, but I may say that breaking through the 2Tb barrier for a single array remains irritating. My finger FU's didn't help. Benchmark array reads >350MByte/sec look impressive. Pity I don't have a processor that can do anything with data at that rate.

Get significant problems with simultaneous large file (8Gbytes) writes - the array goes to hell. So much for Escalade and NCQ....

This article has been up for almost 5 months now. Maybe it's time to remove the 'new' tag from the SR home page for it now?

Either it just me getting confused, or the text on page 1 of the review is not the right article..

The text keeps talking about the 2.5" Savvio drives.

IE:

"The following performance tests contrast the Savvio 15K.1 with the following contemporary 15K RPM Ultra320 units:"

Obviously, this has nothing to do with the Barracuda ES.
