A-DATA Nobility NH03 1TB USB 3.0 External HDD - Benchmarks - Crystal Disk Mark

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?

Note: Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 is not available to the public yet, but the Technical Preview does allow us to test 4K performance at queue depths of 4 and 32 in addition to 1. The current release Crystal Disk Mark only shows us QD 1.

In a recent announcement the makers of CDM stated that they were making the 1000MB test the default benchmark so we have changed over from the 100MB test and started using the 1000MB test in our reviews.

 

4K files take a very long time to read and write on platter drives. Here we see the 4K read performance of the Nobility NH03 is just over half a megabyte a second. The 4K write speed is twice as fast.
