Article Publish Date:
Well it seems that having hurt my hand was not enough and so yesterday my car got an engine error which means i need to take it to the dealership tomorrow. Anyways aside the bad news the very good news are that we just got not one but three of the much awaited Seagate Constellation ES.2 3TB SATA 3 Enterprise hard disk drives here for testing. Aside the Constellation ES.2 3TB SATA 3 however we also received a good number of the latest Seagate drives which we will be reviewing in the coming weeks so we suggest staying tuned for those as well especially if you are out in the market to get a new HDD.
Founded in 1979, Seagate is the leading provider of storage devices–in 2008, we became the first hard drive manufacturer to ship 1 billion hard drives–with the industry’s broadest product offering. Our products include 2.5–inch and 3.5–inch hard disk drives, solid state drives and hybrid drives (which incorporate both rotating media and flash memory) for compute–intensive enterprise environments that demand high performance, low–power consumption and proven reliability. In 2009, Seagate developed its first solid–state drives (SSDs) that leverage non–volatile flash memory instead of spinning magnetic media. Seagate’s first SSDs were designed for enterprise environments utilizing blade and general server applications. We followed that up in 2010 with a solid state hybrid drive for laptops–a product with a unique algorithm that enables the drive to “learn” which files are needed most often and then places them in the drive’s on–board flash memory for lightning–fast access. Seagate’s products enable high–performance desktop and laptop systems, along with ultraportable devices such as netbooks and thin laptops. We delivered the industry’s first 2TB, 7,200–RPM desktop hard drive, along with the world’s first 7mm, 2.5–inch form factor drive. These innovative storage products deliver super–sized capacities, industry–leading performance, encrypted security features and more.
Since many of you out there have stormed us with emails asking for reviews of all the latest SATA 3 hard disk drives in the market we felt we should prioritize the review and so following their arrival we did our usual thorough testing procedure to see just how well they compare not only to their predecessor the Constellation ES 2TB drives but also against the latest Hitachi DeskStar 7K3000 3TB hard disk drives we tested almost 2 weeks ago. As you will see later on the Constellation ES.2 3TB SATA 3 drives are perhaps the fastest SATA 3 drives we have ever used but considering these are the high end enterprise version Seagate has to offer i wouldn't expect anything less.
