I ended up purchasing this drive after I received a defective and then poor performing replacement Firecuda 2TB. I was prepared to be disappointed after replacing my Caviar Black. I have to say while it is about 20 Mbps slower than the Caviar it is still very fast and very quiet, especially compared to the noisy WD drive. The 4K perfomance is pretty dismal, but in real world use I just don't see much difference. I am a gamer and use my PC as a small office server. So it is very fast with a Samsung EVO 850 primary drive, OCed 3570K, GTX 1060, Crucial Ballistex memory etc. The Caviar is clearly the best mechanical drive out there but at twice the price per MB I'm not sure it is worth the price. I guess the proof will be in the durablity and the drive does get warm with long and large data transfers.-----------------------------------------------------------------------CrystalDiskMark 5.1.2 x64 (C) 2007-2016 hiyohiyo Crystal Dew World :* MB/s = 1,000,000 bytes/s [SATA/600 = 600,000,000 bytes/s]* KB = 1000 bytes, KiB = 1024 bytes Sequential Read (Q= 32,T= 1) : 148.946 MB/s Sequential Write (Q= 32,T= 1) : 111.386 MB/s Random Read 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 1.866 MB/s [ 455.6 IOPS] Random Write 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 1.163 MB/s [ 283.9 IOPS] Sequential Read (T= 1) : 147.841 MB/s Sequential Write (T= 1) : 126.389 MB/s Random Read 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 0.834 MB/s [ 203.6 IOPS] Random Write 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 1.283 MB/s [ 313.2 IOPS] Test : 100 MiB [E: 7.1% (45.0/634.7 GiB)] (x3) [Interval=5 sec] Date : 2016/11/14 14:22:50 OS : Windows 10 [10.0 Build 14393] (x64)
So far so good. I've had my brand new PC build for just over a month and already have this drive more than half full. That being said, I haven't had any issues with heat or dips in read/write speed. This little drive is great for the price and is going strong. Gonna be time to back it up to a NAS soon though.Never had an issue with speed, even on notoriously slow loading games and programs.
Works as advertised. I bought these as replacements for Seagate Barracude drives that failed on me. While I haven't had any issues with this drive (*yet*), I'm waiting to see what the longevity is since I've had quite a few Seagate BarraCuda drives fail in the past. So far so good after a month or so.
We will be happy to hear your thoughts
