The high-end (300+ GB) 7200.9s match the larger, 16-megabyte buffer found on today's contemporary SATA drives. Most of the smaller versions come standard with 8, while a handful of relatively tiny PATA drives incorporate 2 megabytes. Seagate specs the 7200.9's average seek time at a rather high 11 milliseconds. The 7200.9 is also among the first drives to ship featuring the 300 MB/sec SATA II interface. Seagate targets the Barracuda 7200.9 almost exclusively at the desktop market where lighter loads and 8 hours-a-day, 5 days-a-week power-on cycles are the norm. Though a desktop unit, the 7200.9 nonetheless enjoys the best warranty around... 5 years of protection.. You can learn more about this HDD over at's full test report..
