Response Times




Random read response for the Surveillance drive came in slightly better than the NAS but right behind the Desktop HDD.




Random write shared similar results; the Surveillance solution came out ahead of the NAS.




Moving over to sequential response times, the Surveillance was right behind the Desktop HDD.




In sequential write response, the Surveillance came in at 27ms at QD32, just behind the Desktop HDD.



Power Consumption


Our custom power testing samples each drive for a period of three minutes across each workload. In order to offer more granularity, we sample the power in one-second intervals.




Power consumption for the Surveillance HDD was almost a direct mirror of the NAS HDD of the same capacity. The drive started out at 5.75 watts in random workloads and peaked out at 6.5 watts during sequential workloads.
