Seagate Barracuda 2TB hard drive review

Closing thoughts.

I will start by saying that I

data and
especially large files. However if you have plans on having the Seagate
Barracuda hard drive as your main drive… then I would suggest to going

drive for
storage then the Seagate Barracuda is a good drive, with an affordable

Therefore, I give the ‘Good’
rating to the Seagate
Barracuda 2TB HDD

myce good rating
