Proven Quality and Performance
Desktop HDDs are the world's most popular desktop storage solutions. With consistent quality and performance-enhancing innovations and features like native command queuing and perpendicular recording, Seagate delivers time—and time again.
Additionally, Desktop HDDs are produced using the most sophisticated manufacturing process in the industry, with a focus on environmental stewardship. Advanced power modes enables you to save more energy while in idle states—without sacrificing performance. Plus, 70 percent or more of the materials used to build Desktop HDD drives are recyclable.
Maximizes Storage Densities
Desktop HDD, 1TB-per-disk technology incorporates 340,000 unique tracks in the width of a single inch. This incredible storage density drives new capacity possibilities and lowers your total storage costs.
Seagate AcuTrac technology enables storage densities with accurate reading and writing to nano-sized tracks that are only 75 nanometers wide! That's about 1/500th the size of the period at the end of this sentence.
Size and Performance
You get more bang for your buck with the industry's first 1TB-per-disk hard drive technology.
Your drive is up to 45 percent faster than the last generation thanks to Seagate OptiCache technology. OptiCache technology combines the latest advances in hard drive microprocessors, DRAM, and proprietary caching algorithms resulting in great performance improvements for you.
The sure way to get native access to hard drives bigger than 2TB is to adopt the new BIOS standard called UEFI. If you're not there yet, Seagate has an alternative.
Free DiscWizard software from Seagate provides you a means to effectively utilize your 3TB and 4TB Seagate Desktop HDDs, even with Windows XP and using the standard PC BIOS.

On the other hand the new drives reported extremely low write rates and HD Tune Pro also showed that while the read rate were around 150 MB/s the write rates peaked around 65-128 byte blocks at below 150 then fell from there to low double digits by 8192 bytes which is probably where most large files would be. I tried switching controllers and SATA ports and the results were nearly the same. In desperation I deleted the partitions with Windows' Disk Management, rebooted and then created new partition(s) and retested with HD Tune Pro and now they all preform nearly identically. I have no idea what happened the first time because I think I created the new disks and GPT and the partitions the same way with Disk Manager but they all doing well now. If anyone has any idea about what I experienced I would appreciate a note.
All and all, these are very large, reasonably priced drives for those needing more than 4 or 5 TBs and would recommend them to others but I would always pass on the story of this anomaly that I experienced.
"The following is included:
SATA interface cable
SATA power cable
Upon seeing this, I had naturally presumed those accessories would be present in the package, yet they were not. Hopefully, Seagate Support will see this review, and make some clarifications somewhere about what is, and what is not included in this "retail" package.
The one thing holding me back from giving this product 5 stars is that it did not come with any of the hardware to install it in the drive enclosure. I specifically purchased this product (STCL2000400) as it is described both on Amazon and Seagates website as a "kit", as opposed to ST2000DX001 which is described as "drive only". The assumption here is that the "kit" will come with all the associated screws, plates, mounts and cables etc, to complete a new install. It comes with none of these. In the spec sheet on Seagates website, it indeed says all thats included is the drive, installation manual and warranty documentation. It pays to read the fine print, I guess, but if this is the case, I don't see how its any different to the "drive only" product ST2000DX001.
Still a good drive in my opinion, but be aware of the extra pieces you may also need to order.
