On average, this drive sees 150MB/s reads and 100MB/s writes. This is pretty good for a 7200rpm drive. I will definitely update this in the future if this unexpectedly fails.
I have chosen to instead get two 2TB hard drives, as that at least rules out certain incompatibilities I have heard of.
Time to boot Windows 7 past the welcome screen:
Old 5900 RPM HDD= 1 min 15 secs
New 7200 RPM HDD= 50 secs (33% faster)
Time to start a game (GTA5) and connect to a multiplayer server:
Old 5900 RPM HDD= 3 min 32 secs
New 7200 RPM HDD= 3 min 15 secs (8% faster)
These differences are noticeable, but nowhere near as drastic as the speed increase you'd get from purchasing a solid state drive. This is one of the best valued HDD's in the market as of right now; if you're waiting for overpriced SSD's to become a more realistic price, this hard drive should serve you well before you make the leap.
I’m a little skepical about Seagate drives, only because every older one of the same brand has failed me, earlier than several WD drives I have owned. (Just my own experience...others may say the opposite..) Why are Seagate drives overall less expensive than WD? Maybe reliability is part of the reason?
I understand the quality of their drives has improved over the years.
I hope this one lasts.
Put them in the enclosure and they were recognized right away. I can't hear much difference with the NAS so the drives aren't much louder than ambient from where I'm listening. I had some drives from another manufacturer that certainly sounded like a helicopter was about to take off.
No slowdowns in reads or writes, but I'm limited to my gigabit connection for all the speeds I care about.
Pleased with the price for these.
