The confusing 2TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST2000DM001

The confusing 2TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST2000DM001

A few weeks ago debuted his family 7200.14 hard drives, hard drives that have received good reviews for his performance, but because of a curious decision Seagate arouse controversy.

The hard drive family Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 consists of models with capacities from 1 to 3TB, and according to their website are composed dishes 1TB each, but apparently not all models comply with it, because from VR- Zone inform us that there are two variants of the 2TB model, with two 1TB dishes and other dishes with 3 666GB.

The 2TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST2000DM001 models, comes in two different editions made up between 2-3 dishes with different capacities (1TB and 666GB respectively), perhaps it would not pose major problem for the user, but unfortunately this is not the case, for the version with two plates of 1TB (190MB / s) has outperformed the dishes 666GB (144MB / s).

The only way to differentiate between the two variants is top notch right side of the hard drive where the version with three plates of 666GB (slower) is smaller. Interestingly Seagate offers both versions of the same model and obviously making a lot of confusion among users, but are informed that they could buy the version with lower performance that equals that of the models that have been tested on several websites.

Why not release the version with three different dishes in another format? Sincerely is an incomprehensible decision by Seagate, and that undoubtedly confuses users.
