A number of design improvements enables the Barracuda 7200.7 to continue Seagate's industry-leading ruggedness. These include fewer, smaller and lower-profile PCB components protecting against handling damage. The PCB itself is now recessed to reduce the risk of handling damage. A recessed motor housing and connector with protective nub also shield against handling damage. And the drive's chip set is more integrated than ever, with just a single chip dedicated to both read-channel and interface functions. The 120GB Barracuda 7200.7 Hard Drive also features Seagate's 3D Defense System to protect users' information from common problems. The exclusive 3D Defense System - Drive Defense, Data Defense and Diagnostic Defense - has helped customers by improving long-term reliability and reducing returns due to handling damage.
