Single-User Performance StorageReview uses the following tests to assess non-server use: As it is with cache, more is also better when it comes to warranties. And we can draw a conclusion that Hitachi has proportionally reduced length and width of magnetic bits on platters of the latest models. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! Nevertheless, NCQ effect is noticeable. Average typical seek time.

That leaves single-user results and when it comes to the 7K’s, who can argue? Hitachi’s latest continues its impressive showing in the High-End DriveMark.

View Cart Proceed to checkout. The diagrams display average results.

Hitachi Deskstar 7K, disk 1. If we average HDD results by all six patterns reading, writing, and copying large and small files. Thus, we again found proof of some latencies in these drives demonstrated in NCQ mode they are most noticeable with small blockswhich slow the overall performance down.

The Deskstar 7K builds upon its exceptional desktop scores by seizing the top slot in our FarCry capture. Western Digital iNAND memory has become an important 7i500 of automated driver systems with local storage to fit the demanding data needs of the vehicle.

Interestingly, the 7K model is also slower than its predecessor here, although it must have retained the 7K seek rate. Besides, we have several serious questions about the value of NCQ in these drives. Despite a one- to three-platter advantage, none of the competition can match Hitachi’s drives. Likely due to its relatively large, swift actuator, the Deskstar’s seeks are slightly more audible than the competition.

See all customer images. It has to do with adaptive formatting, of course. Only 1 left in stock – order soon. Now let’s have a look at how the hard drives fair in old but still popular Disk WinMark 99 tests from the WinBench 99 package. Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1.

Conclusion Hitachi has made the transition to a native SATA design and a megabyte buffer with aplomb. Hitachi’s deskshar formerly IBM’s drives have always been among the largest and speediest around. And the track density TPI — by Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.

Though the Deskstar 7K lags a bit in the density department and as a result must assemble five platters to hit the half-terabyte mark, the ultimate proof is in the pudding. High results of these drives in Quiet Seek mode speak of little effect of random access performance on PCmark04, if HDD cache is efficient.


The drive is running so hot that after k7500 minutes you can’t touch it. An inner-zone measurement of It will be popular only in those desktop segments, where it performs rather well and gitachi old fans of IBM Vancouvers are happy with another worthy but still not all-purpose and certainly the best deakstar like in better years: Storage would be pretty stagnant if additional gigabytes were all new hard drives had to offer, but there’s more to the Deskstar 7K than its copious capacity.

Our testlab got a new sample of the top model.

Hitachi DeskStar 7K500 (500GB)

Deksstar can draw the following conclusions from these test results. If it deteriorates by a couple of tenths of millisecond, it can contribute to a HDD performance drop even for movements between neighboring tracks. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff!
