    Ok, I use nothing but Seagate drives in all of my machines, mostly due to their newfound-damn-near-silent drives, and the fact they run so much cooler than WD's and come with a 5 year warranty.

    Now, my question is....

    WHAT DOES THE DARN .x MEAN IN THE 7200.7---7200.8---7200.9 etc etc

    I know in the serial number, example

    ST means Seagate Technologies
    3 means form factor
    80817 means size in formatted MB
    AS means interface---SATA in this case

    but I cannot determine what the Barracuda 7200.x means. where x is either 7, 8 or 9.


    nothing adds up on this page as to what the number could mean. It doesn't seem to denote Db, or cache, or seek time or anything that I can find that explains the existence of that x factor

    Its the "generation" of the drive series, with the 7200.9's being the ninth and latest gneration of their desktop 7200 RPM drives.
