How does the Seagate Barracuda XT differ from the competition?
In terms of its specifications, the Barracuda XT measures up against the Hitachi Deskstar almost identically. Both drives feature a SATA 6.0Gb/s interface, 7200 RPM, 64MB cache, and a price of $179. The difference is Seagate's industry leading 5 year warranty. Both Hitachi and Western Digital only offer 3 years.

There is 2.72 TiB of capacity after installing and formatting the Barracuda XT drive. This is the same amount of useable space we saw from Hitachi's Deskstar, obviously.
