[techpowerup] Seagate Quietly Launches Single-platter Barracuda 7200.11 320GB HDD

Hard drive manufacturer Seagate has quietly updated its Barracuda 7200.11 series of hard drives to now include a 320GB single-platter HDD. Previously starting at 500GB, the 7200.11 family now includes a 3.5-inch 320GB drive with only one platter (model number: ST3320613AS), which features SATA 3.0 Gbps interface, 16MB of cache (no 32MB version available like the other models) and MTBF (mean time before failure) of 750,000 hours. The drive is said to have a slightly lower noise output and power consumption as well as improved read/write characteristics.

I saw one of these the other day as a replacement for my current HDD which is sometimes making odd noises.
