Seagate Skyhawk 10TB Review


Seagate SkyHawk 10 TB Surveillance HDD Testing:

HD Tune 5.0 Pro measures disk performance to make comparisons between drives or disk controllers. In the 4.60 Pro version, the user can measure not only drive performance as a whole, but also run more precise file and random access benchmarks as well.



File Benchmark:



SiSoft Sandra 2014: SiSoft Sandra is a diagnostic utility and synthetic bench marking program. It allows you to view your hardware at a higher level to be more helpful.

  • Physical Disks


Anvil Storage Utility: Anvil Storage Utility is a fully configurable tool that allows the user to test and validate the performance of the installed solid state drives, showing both bandwidth and IOPS results. The tool will output a read score and write score along with an aggregate score, much like we see with AS SSD. Not only do you get standard test routines, but a myriad of options when you dig into the tools capabilities. For our testing, we will run the default tests and report the results in chart form below for comparison.




ATTO Disk Benchmark v2.47: Atto Disk Benchmark is another aged, but good hard drive benchmark utility designed to test read and write speeds for different file sizes.




The Seagate SkyHawk 10 TB Surveillance drive is surprisingly quick at reads, but proves to be somewhat slower in writes. This isn't a terrible tradeoff, as it seems Seagate has optimized for multi-stream writes as opposed to single-stream writes. This bodes well for its use in a DVR or surveillance system!
