Its new technology and Seagate even knows that the technology will improve. Still an improvement over older technology though!

It is nice Seagate is offering their 5 year warranties again but I'd prefer the 2TB Barracuda LP. $300 for what I'd call a storage drive (even though it performed admirably) is a tad steep.
I still like one OS and one or more storage drives. (Though for an all in one solution, the price makes a little more sense.)

Eh. 6 Gbps on a mechanical drive that doesn't come close to 3 Gbps doesn't make me jump for my wallet.

I want 6 Gbps SSDs dammit! :P

Hey I agree! Faster storage though that's for sure

I want to see theoretical speeds become a reality.

I think it'll be a while before a single drive hits 600 MB/s (well, a little less since SATA II actually maxes out around 260 MB/s)
:(

Some people are like slinkies - not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

USB 3.0 interests me more right now (until I hop on the SSD train when they come down in price)

Sata 3 Gbps is maxed out at ~270 MB/s but Sata 6 Gbps is maxed out at twice that at roughly 540 MB/s. :)
