    Good drive. Good amount of space. Good price. Couldn't really ask for more.

    My benchmark tests are weak because I have 1TB partitioned as my "Program Files Overflow" and the remainder as a storage partition. I might just combine the partitions and defrag frequently instead.

    The write speed is constantly at 120MB/s. Very happy about it at the price.

    Well originally I chose the Western Digital Cavier and this was another headache... literally. My build was depressingly making a loud humming noise that at first I thought was the graphics card. After some sleuthing, and since I had my OS on the SSD I unplugged the hard drive and thank God again the noise went away.

    I bought the Seagate on Amazon and day later it was prrrfect. Doens't make any noise at all.

    Photos, Videos, Movies and Music go here. The rest on the SSD. Tons of space for a solid price.

    Lot of space. Not super expansive.

    Paired to 32GB Optane caching module for formidable mix of quick boot/access/storage at low cost.

    Stores files. Have had it for 6-7 years. No issues at all. I keep my least important data on this drive because it is getting older and I do worry it may one day fail.

    It makes a funny clicking noise randomly, and it's an average HDD, but it's cheap, worth the price.

    Used only for video storage and is cheap.

    Not the first Barracuda, and likely not the last. Not a bad spin-drive for storage.
