Seagate Desktop SSHD 4TB ST4000DX001 Consumer Hybrid HD Review

Test Rig

Testing we turn off any internet connection and reboot the machine to ensure Windows 10 pesky updates don’t skew numbers. Once rebooted we disable the internet open the task manager and wait about 10 minutes for any background tasks to finish. Once the CPU usage is at or below 1% we proceed with our tests. Each test is ran three times, we then average the three tests and report that score here. Should we run into any anomalous tests we toss the abortion test and run the test again.

  1. Sounds like a great drive but…an decent 120/240gb SSD and a 3+tb storage disk is almost the same price and gives you much much faster performance??
