Seagate Acknowledges Problems with 1.5TB HDD

AnInkle (882630) writes "Seagate's 1.5TB Barracuda has been available for a couple months from multiple retailers. But shortly after release, numerous reports of random freezes appeared on several sites. The hang apparently occurs in Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows Vista when streaming video or transferring files at low speeds. After a couple weeks of silence, Seagate has finally officially acknowledged the problem in a response to The Tech Report, saying they're investigating the "issue" affecting "a small number of Barracuda 7200.11 hard drives." Acknowledging the "inconvenience" is a start, but most users expect at least average performance and prompt service from the capacity king of data storage."
