Read Bandwidth / Write Performance
Read Bandwidth For this benchmark, HDTach was used. It shows the potential read speed which you are likely to experience with these hard drives. The long test was run to give a slightly more accurate picture. We donít put much stock in Burst speed readings and thus we no longer included it. The most important number is the Average Speed number. This number will tell you what to expect from a given drive in normal, day to day operations. The higher the average the faster your entire system will seem.
Write Performance For this benchmark HD Tune Pro was used. To run the write benchmark on a drive, you must first remove all partitions from that drive and then and only then will it allow you to run this test. Unlike some other benchmarking utilities the HD Tune Pro writes across the full area of the drive, thus it easily shows any weakness a drive may have.
Since the V4 is a SATA 3Gb/s drive the numbers it posts are noticeably lower than most other reference points in our charts. This is to be expected as the other drives use SATA 6Gb/s interfaces and controllers that are meant for more modern systems. However, the speeds the V4 posts are still much higher than what you would get from any hard drive.
