Time to desktop came in at 64 seconds or slightly quicker than its Blue counterpart.

 

 

Resume from S4 Hibernation

 

Hibernation or S4 is part of the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface specification. In our custom "Resume from S4" testing, we allow the drive to enter hibernation for a period of ten minutes; from there we use our trusted stopwatch and time how long it takes the drive to resume to a working desktop environment.

In our resumption testing, the WD Red did quite well with a time of 7.4 seconds, a slight bit faster than the SPCX and much quicker than the HGST 7K1000.
