With this powerful ST31000528AS 1TB Barracuda internal hard drive by Seagate, you have room to transfer as many programs and files as you want without worrying about slowing down your PC. This 1TB hard drive has a high spindle speed that allows you to perform multiple functions at once. Simultaneously enjoy online gaming while streaming music that gets you pumped for the game. Check your email, have an IRC window open, and do a Seagate hard disk firmware scan with ease. The Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5-inch 7200 RPM internal hard drive is also ideal for your work applications. If you need to run complex number-crunching software at 500GB or if you are doing a live-streaming video conference call, then the Seagate Barracuda 1TB hard drive has an RPM count that doesn't lag, even allowing you to search 500GB files with ease.The ST31000528AS Seagate Barracuda is a bare hard drive. That means that nothing is on the platters, and the only information on it is the Seagate firmware. All Seagate firmware is stored in hardware chips on the bottom of the Barracuda. This firmware doesn't count toward the 1TB capacity. Each Seagate Barracuda 1TB hard drive comes with special firmware designed specifically for it. Firmware opcode serves two major functions.Barracuda drives use their firmware to automatically mark bad blocks. All Barracuda drives perform read-and-write checks when they transfer data to a sector. If the transfer failed, then the onboard firmware in the Seagate Barracuda marks the block as bad. The Seagate Barracuda controller then uses a trick to load the data from the 32MB cache and transfer it to another sector. This firmware trick prevents data loss. The second function of the Seagate Barracuda controller's onboard firmware is to provide LBA numbers. These let computers transfer data to each sector that make up the 1TB capacity of the Seagate Barracuda without knowing physical geometry. This technique increases the data transfer rate of the Seagate Barracuda. This makes it compatible with 500GB Apple models.You don't have to worry about having to transfer firmware updates to your Seagate Barracuda either. Technicians from Seagate uploaded firmware on the Barracuda when it left the plant. Seagate engineers also gave the 1TB HDD a full low-level format. They also took the time to transfer a metal cover to the top of the Seagate Barracuda HDD. Each Seagate Barracuda takes the same screws and cables every SATA hard drive uses to transfer data. Any USB-SATA interface turns your Seagate Barracuda into a 1TB external transfer volume. You don't see much of a performance hit if you use your Barracuda with this type of transfer equipment. Transfer files to another computer even if its motherboards don't support 1TB or even 500GB disks. Small form factor boxes transfer and store data on the Barracuda when devices can't access a 1TB volume.Since the Seagate Barracuda firmware is compatible with RAID technology, string it to another 1TB drive. Use more than one 1TB SSD to make a 2TB or 3TB array. Seagate Barracuda firmware technology lets devices transfer data to this Serial ATA storage array as if it was one drive. You may also partition the Seagate Barracuda and transfer data to it like it was two drives. This is great if you want to replace a 500GB inside a device. Some game consoles might want the Seagate Barracuda to look like two 500GB disks. Desktop or mobile routers that currently have a 500GB model can transfer data to the Seagate Barracuda.
