Seagate IronWolf 10TB HDD review

Last updated on January 4th, 2017 at 12:04 am

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.

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).

60GB Steam Folder transfers  50GB File Folder  12MB Movie Folder comp
10GB Photo Folder comp    10GB Audio Folder comp
With only six discs to read and write to, the Seagate NAS 8TB is faster than its larger 10TB sibling with seven discs across all the real life tests.
