This mechanical hard drive with a 3.5-inch form factor targets desktop and console users and takes full advantage of the SATA 6 Gbps interface, providing speeds of up to 190 MB/s. It has a rotational speed of 5400 rpm and features 256 MB cache memory. It ships in "frustration-free packaging," which means no cables or retail box are present, so the buyer gets the drive inside an anti-static bag, nothing else.

The Seagate Barracuda family is extremely popular on Amazon, having no less than 103,802 validated user reviews and over 1,000 questions. However, these ratings are shared between all existing mechanical hard drives and SSDs that carry the Barracuda label.
