Synthetic Performance

We start off with synthetic tests results. They don't tell the whole story of course, but it's a quick and dirty way of gauging relative performance between drives, and of course, it's easily reproducible by our readers at home.

HD Tune

HD Tune main benchmark results, read on the left, write on the right.

The results from HD Tune's main benchmark portray the WD Black 6TB as a very fast and responsive mechanical hard drive. Sequential performance is top notch among 3.5-inch models and access times are relatively low.


CrystalDiskMark benchmark result, 4TB model on the left, 1TB model on the right.

According to CrystalDiskMark, the 6TB model's random performance is more sobering, consistently trailing both the VelociRaptor 1TB and Seagate Enterprise 3.5 HDD v4 6TB. The drive displays more of a bias towards large block sizes.
