Now let’s take a closer look at the results demonstrated by our testing participants in NTFS file system. The diagram devoted to file creation (writing) again doesn’t contain any surprising details. The leaders are Seagate ST9160821A, Seagate ST9120821A and Samsung HM120JC. Western Digital WD1200VE is slightly slower, but it still looks very decent in this test. The other two drives, Samsung HM100JC and Western Digital WD1000VE, are again the last ones to finish this race, the latter being the slowest of all.
The file reading results give the laurels to Seagate ST9160821A. The nest best after the leader are Seagate ST9120821A, Fujitsu MHV2100AH, Samsung HM120JC and Hitachi HTS541010G9AT. Unfortunately, Samsung HM100JC and Western Digital WD1000VE are again the slowest hard disk drives in our today’s test session.
Copying files within the same partition doesn’t allow us to name an indisputable leader, but the leading group remains the same. Seagate ST9160821A and Seagate ST9120821A look more attractive than the rest of the tested HDDs. Samsung HM120JC, Fujitsu MHV2100AH and Western Digital WD1200VE fell a little bit behind the leaders. As for the file copy speed of Samsung HM100JC and Western Digital WD1000VE, they are again the slowest of all except for one product: Hitachi HTS541010G9AT.
The file copying from one partition to another is won by Seagate HDDs that showed very close level of performance. The next best drive here is Samsung HM120JC with Fujitsu MHV2100AH and Western Digital WD1200VE following right behind it. Unfortunately, Samsung HM100JC and Western Digital WD1000VE failed to impress us again.
