Performance idle W, avg. You can find products similar to this one for sale below. Why not 1K or 8K for that matter? However, the 7K also had some areas where it shined. Gains measured from the transition from byte to 4K sectors equal up to eleven percent increase in physical platter space. Another significant area in which the 7K performed well was in power consumption.

In this trace we recorded MB being written to the drive and 7,MB being read. Dissipation Startup W, peak,max. Tintri releases TGC 4. Capacity for Mobile Platforms. In the next test, we record the average power consumed over a small range of synthetic benchmarks.

Designed with affordable capacity and performance in mind, the Travelstar series delivers the right balance of capacity, speed, and design flexibility to meet the needs of mobile applications. Startup power requirements measured well under HGST’s max quote at just 4. Excludes command overhead 5.

Travelstar Series

So, why choose 4K as the definitive sector size? For the average consumer, trying to translate random 4K write speeds into an everyday situation is pretty difficult. You 71000 find products similar to this one for sale below. The same was true of the Travelstar 7K’s performance in our real-world testing environments. Available in an industry-standard 2.


This helps to improve capacity and error correction capabilities.

Our synthetic benchmarks are geared at showing the performance of the drive in an uncached “worst case” scenario, while our real-world traces allow the drive to cache data and better show how the drive would perform during repetitive day-to-day activities. Underneath, there are thermal pads to keep the drive from overheating. In a couple of categories, the drive performed with the same or less energy than the quoted figures, which is obviously a big advantage in the notebook computer upgrades segment for which the 7K is intended.

HGST Travelstar 7K1000 Review

Gains measured from the transition from byte to 4K sectors equal up to eleven percent increase in physical platter space. Data buffer MB 3. With operating systems and 7k100 controllers leveraging new technologies, HGST has packed the 7K with GB per platter density, along with implementing Advanced Format Technology.

The Travelstar 7K is fairly unique in the space. Many drives are migrating to slimmer z-Heights at 7mm or even 5mm to meet the needs of space-constrained applications such as upgrading HDDs in ultrabooks. Highlights Up to 1TB in a 2. On the rear of the drive, we find the connectors for power and SATA.

For this reason we turned to our StorageMark traces, which include HTPC and Gaming traces to help readers find out how a drive might rank under their conditions. HGST’s provided power values came decently close to the hgs we collected from our tests.

The key sources of power draw get narrowed down hgsr either the bright screen or the storage device used. Accessible capacity will vary from the stated capacity due to formatting, system software, and other factors. Eight small screws affix the circuit board to the hard drive body securely.

One megabyte MB is equal to one million bytes, one gigabyte GB is equal to 1,MB one billion bytesand one terabyte TB is equal to 1,GB one trillion bytes when referring to storage capacity. It helps when comparing drives in every setting possible, but it doesn’t exactly work out into faster everyday usage or better game hgsg times.

The highest power values were found with reads at 3W. Design Flexibility Choose 7mm design for thin and light or 9. Mainstream performance for more power-efficient operation. The 7K also provided a very low max 71k000 write latency, though its average 4k write latency was higher.
