Test System Setup
Processor: Intel Dual Core E6600 @ 3.3GHz (9x366MHz)
Memory: 2x 1GB DDR2 PC2-8400 (Supplied by GeIL)
Motherboard: ASUS P5W DH Deluxe (Supplied by ASUS)
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS (Supplied by NVIDIA)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP3
The system mentioned above will be used to conduct our tests along with the following HDDs that were supplied to us with the T4H CR unit.
4 x Seagate Barracuda ES 250GB eSATA = 1TB.
Naturally with large storage devices, be prepared to both twiddle your thumbs and wait patiently for this HUGE volume to initialise and format. Or, you could just leave it be and enjoy an hour'ish break.
We have tested all connectivity methods with the unit which as mentioned before comprise FireWire 400 and 800, USB 2.0 and eSATA. For comparatives sake, we have also thrown in a high-speed 8GB USB Pen Drive, a singular Western Digital 750GB eSATA caddy and also WD's popular Passport Series 160GB USB 2.0 external drive.
Onto the test results, we go!
