Ideal for 24x7 multi-drive enterprise storage solutions, the Seagate Barracuda ES (ST3250620NS) is a 3.5-inch internal hard drive. The SATA interface ensures data transfers between the Seagate HDD and the host at speeds of 3 Gbps. With a cache memory of 16 MB, the Seagate Barracuda ES (ST3250620NS) lets you search records in seconds. The native command queuing prioritizes multiple read and write commands during execution, guaranteeing stable and better performance of the internal hard drive. The Seagate HDD incorporates perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) to store more data in the same available space by recording in vertical axis with silent acoustics and thermal stability. The rotational vibration (RV) tolerance eliminates rotational vibration in multi-drive environments, ensuring high reliability and performance of the drive. As the Seagate Barracuda ES (ST3250620NS) has hot-swapping capability, you can replace the existing drive in your system with zero downtime. Less

DON'T BUY SEAGATES made in China

Pros Very low price for a 250GB SATA 2 drive. Excellent read/write speed WHEN IT WORKS.

Having built and serviced PCs for 24 years, I've used hard drives with Hitachi, IBM, Maxtor, Samsung, Seagate and Western Digital labels on them.

Although I still feel that an old IBM Deskstar SCSI is the fastest seek/read hard drive I've ever used in a desktop computer, I recently had a... Read full review »
