In read testing the Desktop .15 did quite well, with a maximum read speed of 168MB/s. Moving down through the chart notice the 2TB Barracuda, this drive uses the same 625GB/sq. in as the Desktop .15 we are looking at today, but carries a 7200RPM spindle speed.

Write testing was equally impressive with the Desktop HDD pushing close to 165MB/s.
