We will test 5 world’s largest hard disk drives with 7,200rpm spindle rotation speed and 250GB storage capacity. We will look at two models from Maxtor and two models from Western Digital supporting ATA and the latest Serial ATA interfaces, as well as at one model from Hitachi with ATA interface, which appeared a real monster, I should say. New testbed, new testing approach, you will love this article!
Performance in FC-Test (NTFS)
Well, at least it doesn’t happen during file creation. Maxtor drives are still faster than the rivals.
And during file reading the changes are more than evident. As you remember Hitachi drive was a leader in FAT32. here Maxtor managed to dash forward.
And during file copying the situation is very similar to what we have already seen in FAT32: Maxtor drives are faster when processing large files, while Hitachi is the best when working with smaller ones.
