Seagate BarraCuda Pro 12TB HDD Review

To test real life performance of a drive we use a mix of folder/file types and by using the FastCopy utility (which gives a time as well as MB/s result) we record the performance of drive reading from & writing to a 256GB Samsung SSD850 PRO.

100GB file
60GB iso image
60GB Steam folder – 29,521 files.
50GB File folder – 28,523 files.
12GB Movie folder – 24 files (mix of Blu-ray and 4K files).
10GB Photo folder – 621 files (mix of .png, raw and .jpeg images).
10GB Audio folder – 1,483 files (mix of mp3 and .flac files).



The drive produced pretty strong read/write performance when it came to dealing with our real life files. It averaged 241.5MB/s for reads over the 9 tests and 215.25MB/s for writes.
