Seagate BarraCuda Pro 12TB Review Discussion

Recommended Posts

Seagate has continued to expand its Guardian Series with higher capacity drives, such as the 12TB BarraCuda Pro. The new BarraCuda Pro delivers the highest capacity desktop drive, while still aiming to deliver high performance. The drive is a 3.5” form factor, SATA drive with 7,200RPM spindle speed and a 256MB cache. The HDD is ideal for users who need lots of capacity, but don’t want to keep adding drives.

Nice review! Still, curios about how noisy the drive is. Especially if to be used in a HTPC environment when noisy things are of high concern.

From the spec sheet, the drive falls under the same drive acoustic ratings as the 4TB, 6TB, 8TB and 10TB models of the BarraCuda Pro, with a typical idle of 2.8 bels (3.0 idle max), and a typical seek of 3.2 bels (3.4 seek max).
