Introduction

When it comes to digital storage, you can’t have enough. Whether you download a lot of music, take a lot of pictures, or are a file hoarder, you know the GB’s can add up. Now-a-days, companies are offering large drives, and don’t make you sacrifice speed to do so. Seagate was one of the first to break the 1TB drive mark, and has always been on the cutting edge of drive size and performance. Seagate has sent us their latest Barracuda Low Power 2TB Hard Drive to see if it stacks up to the competition.
