The latest iteration of the Seagate Barracuda 4TB leaves a good impression. The latest model is faster than its predecessor, but still not noisy. The WD Blue 4TB is just as quiet but clearly slower, while the Toshiba drives offer similar performance at higher noise levels.
Therefore Seagate offers a good mix of performance and other aspects at a remarkably sharp price. The Barracuda has an average price of 112 pounds / 127 euros, clearly less than the WD Blue (126 pounds / 143 euros) and even less than the Toshiba (119 pounds / 135 euros). In terms of pure performance Toshiba remains in the lead, but in our opinion the Seagate is a better all-round product.
