The 200GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 SATA NCQ drives earn praise for several reasons. The results from the various tests show that this generation of drives provides a performance boost over the previous generation, whether the system is capable of implementing NCQ or not. The availability of NCQ just makes the drives even more appealing for those with a system (or controller) capable of taking advantage of this new technology. The drives are worth considering by those without NCQ support, as the solid performance on their present system will only be enhanced by a future upgrade to NCQ, and the additional cost for this feature is minimal.
