Product survey: 5 SATA 500 GB HDD

Performances – Applicative index
We now move on to less synthetic tests, starting with a performance index made from results obtained for the « XP Startup », « Application Loading » and « General Usage » profiles of PC Mark 2005. This involves an HDD’s activity in starting Windows XP (90% reading, 10% writing), in launching various applications (83% reading, 17% writing) and normal use of a PC (60% reading, 40% writing). The weight of each one of these profiles in our index figure is 1/6, 1/3 and 1/2, respectively.


Here, we can’t really see any improvement in performances since the E7K500 and the hard drives without AAM (audio acoustic management) are found at intervals of 10%. The Hitachis are in the lead, followed by Western, Seagate, and then Samsung. The activation of acoustic management doesn’t change the ranking.
