ASUS K50IN Series Notebook

Hard Disk Performance

HDTach

HDTach is a free hard disk benchmarking program from SimpliSoftware. This benchmark is not only capable of producing results on hard disk access times but also CPU usage required during disk access. The "Long bench" was run a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.

 

 

 

Result Analysis

In terms of hard disk performance the Acer and ASUS are on a fairly level playing field when it comes to latency and average read speeds. However mostly thanks to the larger platter size of the 320GB hard disk installed in the ASUS, the K50IN manages to produce a massive 69MB/s increase over the Acers 107Mb/s burst speed. This should be visible mostly in the opening of small files and in general Windows responsiveness.

You need a prize for "it felt like there should have been a handle on the side of the notebook to wind it up" as Line of the Week.

Excellent review and a handy little product for the price.
