MobileMark 2012 1.5 is an application-based benchmark that reflects usage patterns of business users in the areas of office productivity, media creation and media consumption. Unlike benchmarks that only measure battery life, MobileMark 2012 measures battery life and performance simultaneously, showing how well a system design addresses the inherent tradeoffs between performance and power management.

The SuperSSpeed S301 is a power hungry drive. On the enterprise side power is measured in IOPS per watt, but for consumers idle power plays a more significant role. The S301 does outperform the Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB and OCZ Technology Vertex 4 in the battery test.

Here we see why the SuperSSpeed S301 has a difficult time in the battery test. The idle power is higher than just about every other drive in our chart. When reading data the S301 pulls quite a bit of power as well.

 

I didn't expect to find these results, but this product is a direct conversion from enterprise to consumer.
