Toshiba X300 6TB 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 the 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).


The real life file transfer tests all top the 100MB/s mark with the exception of when the drive is writing the small files of the 50GB Folder test when it drops to 94.2MB/s. No surprise then, that this file transfer is also the slowest taking just over nine minutes to complete. Of the multimedia tests, the drive is slowest when writing the contents of the 10GB Audio folder to the drive.
