The 3TB Hitachi Deskstar 7K3000 once delivered performance that rivaled the long established class leaders in this capacity (WD Black included) and at an extremely competitive price.
The drive was special in that it had 5 platters ( vs the usual 3) and ran at 7K rpm despite having a relatively high capacity.
, 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.

, 19/05/2012 According to Hitachi , the Deskstar 7K4000 has a maximum internal transfer rate of 205MB/sec.
Synthetic data transfer benchmarks will see how close we can get to that theoretical limit.
The Deskstar 7K4000#s performance in the 2MB sequential transfer test demonstrates how much impact the spec boost between the 5K4000 and the 7K4000 makes.
, 13/02/2012 We were pleasantly surprised by the fast, quiet, and efficient nature of the 5940RPM Hitachi Deskstar 5K3000.
