[HWCanucks] Seagate Barracuda 3TB Review - Page 4

And 3tb drives aren't usable (at the full size) in windows XP, either.
That's a big shame that we're not progressing because of the older tech that won't go away.

I'd love to see some 4-5TB drives. I want to start on my giant RAID10 for my editing machine.

Have two of these babies on my desk right now. The good thing is that I only paid $140 for them each today.

And the Seagate=unreliable crap is just bull. All manufacturers have their failures. I have over a dozen Seagate drives being used right now and they are still going fine.
