The Seagate NL35 comes in 3 sizes, 250, 400 and 500GBs. XYZ Computing grabbed the 400GB SATA version and took it for a spin. As the drive was designed for enterprise applications, it makes perfect sense as a storage drive, the MTBF is 1 million hours and an error recovery control.

“Exciting things have been coming from Seagate lately, like their NL35 nearline hard drive. Nearline storage is the fastest growing segment is enterprise tiered storage networks, so this is an interesting product and an important move for Seagate who is a late-comer to this part of the market. This article takes a look at Seagate’s NL35 ST3400832NS, a 3.5″ hard drive an enterprise drive which is actually an upgraded version of the Barracuda series. The drive tested was a 400 GB SATA model, though they are also available in 250 GB and 500 GB sizes.”
