RAID 0 Benchmark Seagate 7200.12 2TB Review

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello and welcome to another review of some devices.
Today i want to present my new upgrade. 2TB Raid 0 storage.
So, as you all remember i had ST31000528AS HDD drive by Seagate. And i fully enjoyed it. I was satisfied with it speed access time rate and so on.
But i wanted more, I wanted my games to load feaster, i wanted my windows to load faster and so on. So, i get it )))
I don't know what tests to upload for you, to have some interesting informations.
Anyway my review will be useful for people ,who has 1 single drive, and decided to upgrade it to a RAID 0=speed. So i will post some pictures with it performance and some interesting about Raid 0 performance on different clusters size.

i have those same drives, used to use Samsung drives and had been for years until i got a unlucky bad drive that lasted 4 weeks. So i switched to those same Seagate drives you have there and had them in RAID 0, well its been 4 months and out of the 4 Seagate drives i had only one is still kicking. so i want to know if its just me, or do these drives just hate RAID?

unhappy to hear this. I've been using 528AS hart, to download torrents for 24\7, playing games, copy, storing.... and it's still working in someone's guy system.
So, i think, it's just an unlucky for you to have such problem.
But i have a feeling that i didn't understand your problem as deep as you have it...


writhe to me in private mess..... we can discus it lateR ^^ ))

I am actually considering getting another drive for raid 0, or one of the $100 Intel SSDs to increase speed. Any advice? I'm only using around 250gb of my 1tb drive anyway >.>
