The HGST Deskstar NAS is one of the few NAS drives to feature a 7,200 RPM rotational speed.
This relatively high rotational speed helps the 4TB Deskstar NAS achieve a 4k read/write speed of 1.
14 MB/s is actually the highest 4K read speed I have seen to date on a 4TB drive.
27/02/2017 The WD Red (8TB) and the Seagate NAS HDD (8TB) are our top choices for NAS duty, though the Seagate drive shows significantly better performance.
In addition, 6TB HGST Deskstar NAS HDDs are.
Regular NAS hard drives such as WD Red and Seagate Ironwolf as excellent for this, but even they have a few shortfalls if you are a business user, intend to access your data much more regularly or want a much more comprehensive solution.
Below are the difference between NAS hard drives and WD Red Pro and HGST UltraStar DC.
27/05/2016 HGST Deskstar NAS Vs WD Red A network-attached storage ( NAS ) is a computer data storage made connected to a computer network in order to provide data access to a heterogeneous group of clients.
Because it connects directly to a network, it should have specialized settings either in its hardware, software, or configuration, to be able to perform.
30/01/2015 The HGST Deskstar NAS HDD lost its top spot for read functions (575.
48ms) to the Seagate Enterprise HDD (510.
28ms), although it still had the highest standard deviation in terms of write functions (365.
39ms) for the CIFS configuration.
The WD Red Pro maintained the best performance for write functions with a standard deviation of 125.
02/10/2014 The performance differential is more evident in the 6TB category where the HGST Deskstar NAS is >25% faster than the WD Red.
The seek time for Deskstar NAS was 9.
5ms vs 12.
2ms for WD Red.
The Deskstar NAS continues to outperform WD Red even on burst speeds which measures the performance of the onboard cache.
