    I just got my Hitachi 750GB 7200RPM 7K750 today and am so excited. It's super quiet. And... judging by the benchmarks, pretty fast, IMO. I had posted a thread wanting to know what benchmarks people would like to have run and these were what was requested.

    AS SSD
    CrystalDiskMark (1000MB)
    HD Tune
    AS SSD copy benchmark

    edit - added Anvil Storage Utilities score

    Thanks + rep.

    HDTune looks particularly interesting. The drive was able to keep the peak performance throughout the entire first half. I have never seen such behavior before. It was supposed to decline almost immediately starting from the beginning...

    I think it was an issue with HD Tune. Should have had higher read rates in the beginning that tapered down to meet where the curve begins. I ran it several times and got the same results. The other programs didn't have this issue.

    edit: HDTune displayed this behavior with the HDD in the optical bay AND in an external eSATAp enclosure.

    Thanks!

    Can someone with 750GB Black post the same benchmarks?

    Damn, that's pretty impressive speed for a spinner.

    My score for AS SSD Copy was 149 for my Samsung. The Hitachi hits 226.74. Plus it's bigger.

    Perhaps try the latest version (4.6.x) and see if that HDTune bug is fixed?

    I'm interested to see the "Random Access" benchmarks from HD Tune Pro if it's convenient for you. Thanks in advance!

    Oranges and apples,.. The Hitachi is definitely the quietest, coolest and fastest 750GB hard drive with all the included criteria. Hands down a better buy than a WD Black if you're looking for less noise/vibration, less heat with a bit of unnoticeable performance loss over the WD Black. Oh and it's also a AF (Advanced Format) drive, sorry Momentus.

    Very much appreciated anseio for the benchmarks and testing.
