Desktop PCs with an edge

Server SATA drives spice up desktop PCs without adding much cost 


Want your desktop PC to stand out in a crowd?  You probably wouldn’t think of using storage – at least not without adding a lot of cost.  

Think again. 

Good Gear Guide reviews the Seagate Barracuda ES, a 7200 RPM SATA drive with a difference.  It’s a server drive, but unlike 15K RPM and 10K RPM drives, it’s priced at a small premium to mainstream desktop drives.  Plus, it has the high capacity (up to a terabyte) desktops demand these days.


Seagate’s details on the Barracuda ES can be found here.

Seagate designed this drive for high capacity business applications, but as this review shows, it creates an opportunity for system builders and consumers to build a better desktop.
