Test Rig, Procedures, and Results
I will be using the following hardware in this review:
I will be running four different storage benchmarks on this flash drive: ATTO Disk Benchmark, HDTune's benchmark, Crystalmark's HDD benchmark.
Testing was done using the USB 3.0 ports controlled by the Intel controller on the motherboard. This is to ensure the fastest possible speeds and limit latency and speed hits that are associated with USB ports powered by extra controller chips.
ATTO Disk test:
Speeds are quite lackluster at just under 35mb/s for read speeds and under 28mb/s for write speeds. Inexpensive flash drives make this USB3.0 hard drive look very slow in comparison.
Just like in ATTO speeds are under 35mb/s for write speeds and 28mb/s for read speeds. Not exactly the fastest drive out there.
Things lined up almost exactly the same as the other tests. One thing is for sure, this external hard drive sure won't break any speed records.
