A-DATA Nobility NH03 1TB USB 3.0 External HDD - Benchmarks - HD Tach

It's the pricing game! How much would you expect to pay for a 1TB USB 3.0 HDD? 199? 149? How about 109 USD and it comes with bells and whistles, too?

HD Tach has been around for a long time and is excellent when it comes to testing hard drive performance. It is also a very handy program when it comes to testing the controller used on particular motherboards. Tests such as Read, CPU Utilization and Burst are available at a click of the button and give you a good idea of how the hard drive can perform from system to system.

In HD Tune we get to see the read and write performance across the platters. For the first half of the drive space performance stays above 120MB/s, but starts to slow down considerably after the first half. At the tail end of the test we see that both read and write performance drop down to around 70MB/s.
