The ADATA DashDrive HV620 1TB continues to perform well as we move into our Crystal Disk Mark sequential read and write results. Once again, it did not post big performance numbers in the sea of SATA and USB flash drives, but we never expected it to in the first place. In fact, these relatively modest results are very commendable. Its sequential read and write results reflect what we have seen in the past two pages. Of course, the biggest surprise comes in when we shift our focus to the 512K write results. It completely destroyed every USB 3.0 device on the list. As we move into the 4K and 4K QD32 territory, which requires high input/out operations per second (Commonly referred to as IOPS), the ADATA DashDrive HV620 1TB external hard drive continued to outperform all the other tested USB flash drives in the write portion. Traditionally, this has always been a weak point for USB flash drives, so the HV620 1TB really shone through. Of course, its read performance was handily outperformed by its smaller, non-mechanical counterparts, but this is to be expected. After all, we are testing a mechanical hard disk here.
