Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus 1TB Review



After the Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus 1TB External Hard drive was setup, I found myself amazed at the software that was bundled with the device, however I was wondering how the actual drive performed. It is time to get down to business and see some impressive numbers from this drive, or at least what I hope to be some impressive numbers. To test the OneTouch, I will be using HD Tune for a benchmark, SiSoftware Sandra Professional XIIc and using the Overclockersclub standard set of test files to put it up against some real world testing.

Testing Setup:


Comparison Drives:



  • Average Transfer Rate (HD Tune)
  • Access Time (HD Tune)
  • Burst Rate (HD Tune)
  • CPU Usage (HD Tune)
  • Physical Disk Drive Index(SiSoftware Sandra Professional XIIc)
  • Physical Disk Access Time(SiSoftware Sandra Professional XIIc)
  • File Systems (SiSoftware Sandra Professional XIIc)
  • Real World File Transfer (Windows Explorer)



Well, enough waiting, let's get started with the testing and see how all of these drives compare. I will start off by running HD Tune on all of the drives, let's see how it compares.


SiSoft Sandra:

The next benchmarking software that I am going to use is SisSoftware Sandra Profesional XIIc's File Systems and Physical Disk benchmarks.


The next group of tests that I am going to be performing on these drives are a real world transfer of three different files. They are all different sizes (10MB. 100MB, and 500MB). I will calculate how long it takes these files to transfer from one location to the other final destination.
