Toshiba DT01ACA100 1TB review: Toshiba's first 3.5-inch hard disk

Hitachi's 3.5-inch disks now from Toshiba

By


Test results: PCMark7 (1)

PCMark7 uses traces based on Windows 7-era software. Because this benchmarks uses actual and recent applications, it is the most important benchmark when deciding what type of storage device to buy. A difference with PCMark Vantage is that PCMark 7 runs the traces in real-time. The scores are much closer to each other because of this, but it's also easier to draw real-life conclusions. A score that's twice as high in PCMark 7 also means that the task will actually go twice as fast in reality.

Again the Toshiba/Hitachi disk is slower than its direct competitors from Seagate and Western Digital.

The Windows Defender test is based on a trace in which Windows Defender performs a quick scan of a system.

The importing pictures test is based on a trace in which 68 photos (434MB) are imported from a USB-stick into Windows Live Photo Gallery. The photos are copied, indexed and thumbnails are created.

The video editing test is based on a trace in which an HD video is exported from Windows Live Movie Maker. The film is based on previously imported 1080i MPEG2 videos from a Sony HDR-HC3 camera.
