Top critical review
24 March 2020
I bought this drive to replace a 10 years old HDD 7200rpm. I was not searching for more performance, only more space. But this drive is much much much slower than the HDD I replaced.
When mounted as a data drive with OS installed on another drive, and without any other transfer:
- Sequential read & write are between 125-135 Mo/s
- Random read & write are between 0.72-1.84 Mo/s !
The accelerated SSD cache is only 8 Go and not helping. Between OS and games, there is much more than 8Go of date that are regularly used. The cache seems to never have the data needed, I could not observe any acceleration
after few days of use.
With this level of perf, it is not usable for me, neither as an OS or Data drive.
