Seagate SkyHawk 10 TB Surveillance HDD Testing:

CrystalDiskMark 3.0: CrystalDiskMark is a hard drive benchmark designed to measure the read and write speeds of drives by using 4k blocks, 512k blocks, and sequential data. For our test, we chose the 1000MB option.

 
 
 
 

 

AS SSD v1.1.3466.29641: AS SSD is a benchmark specifically designed to test the speed of solid state drives, though it also works for traditional hard drives. It is designed to measure the read and write speeds, as well as access times for set block sizes. It also assigns a score to the read, write, and overall performance of the drive.

 

 
 
 
 
 

 

PCMark 8 Storage test. This test is used to measure the performance of SSDs, HDDs, and even hybrid solutions by running a set of traces through real world applications to determine drive performance. Each of the routines, as well as the overall scoring and bandwidth tests, are used for a performance comparison with higher results indicating superior peformance.

 

 

 

 

IOmeter is an I/O subsystem measurement and characterization tool for single and clustered systems. It was originally developed by the Intel Corporation and announced at the Intel Developers Forum (IDF) on February 17, 1998. Since then, it has seen widespread use within the industry.

 

 
 
 
 
 

 

Again, we see that the Seagate SkyHawk 10 TB Surveillance drive has been tuned for maximal multi-threaded writes at some slight expense to sequential write speeds. Since multi-threaded writes tend to be a weakness of typical HDDs, I can't say I disagree with this tuning. This drive could easily serve as a bulk Steam/gaming drive, a large NAS drive, a backup HDD, or a monster DVR drive.
