We’ll leave you to read the notes, but suffice it to say that the Seagate Barracuda XT swept about half the benchmarks, and won a second the rest of the time. But is it worth spending an additional $ 30 more than Western Digital constantly back Caviar Green ? We’ll leave that to you and your wallet.
