I bought this just a few days ago. I am sure most of you already know this but you need to go to disk manager after first install of this drive and create a partition for it to be visible under my pc. I was quiet sceptical of the performance as I have historically only used western digital products. I already have a 1Tb WD blue 7200rpm so decided to compare the performance of the two. Please remember that the 2 TB variant from WD is rated at 5400 rpm and not 7200rpm like the 1tb variant.
So I ran CrystalDiskMark and was surprised to see that this hard drive absolutely killed the WD blue 1 TB. Though both offer amazing sequential speeds and you will hardly notice any difference unless you are moving very large files. I have attached the read/write results below. Note the slower drive is WD blue 1 TB and the faster is this one.
Please remember that 2 TB translates to 1.81 TB of usable storage.
