Seagate Barracuda XT 2TB SATA 6G HD Review

Seagate Barracuda XT 2TB

From the outside, there's really not much to see with the Seagate Barracuda XT. If you've seen one 3.5" hard drive, you've seen them all...


Seagate Barracuda XT, 2TB, 7200 RPM Hard Drive

The Seagate Barracuda XT looks just like every other standard 3.5" hard drive. It's got a heavy-dute metal shell with a sticker on the top side and small PCB un the underside. The decal on the top of the drive is adorned with the typical branding, specifications, and serial number info. The PCB on the underside is pretty much devoid of anything interesting--the chips and other components that let the drive do its thing are mounted on the opposite side of the PCB, out of view.

The connectors on the Seagate Barracuda XT, despite the drive's support for SATA 6G, also look identical to other SATA hard drives. We wish there was something exciting to point out from an aesthetic standpoint, but there's not, unfortunately. Regardless, this puppy is going to be stuffed in a case anyway, so who's going to see it, right?
