Here I was using the latest version of SiSoft Sandra's HDD benchmarking section. Once again tests were run three times for accuracy and averaged out.
I have found SiSoft Sandra to be pretty accurate in the past and the results show the speed of this drive nicely.
PC Mark 05 HDD test Suite
PC Mark 05 has a test suite that Futuremark claim bears out real-life performance of a PC. In the HDD test there are five sections, all with different everyday uses. As before I ran the suite three times on each drive for accuracy.
Manual file Transfer
For this test I took a 1,91GB (randomly selected it has to be said) folder of High Definition Movie files. I transferred them from the OS drive to the drive in question. Again, I repeated this three times for each drive to ensure a good result. This is just a small test to see how the Seagate 7200.10 performs in every-day general usage that an average user would perform.
