Sequential read for the 5TB was quite impressive, showing a peak speed of 233 MB/s at QD32.

Moving over to sequential write, we found the performance of the 5TB to drop off. Here we reached a maximum of 198 MB/s.

Read latency for the 5TB drive was very respectable, matching the 6TB across the scale.

Write latency was just above the 6TB model in sequential at 20ms at QD32.
