Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 is in the spotlight. Crystal Disk Mark is an important benchmark, because it tests the input/output operations per second capability of the storage device. As you can see in our charts above, compared against a few select drives; namely, hard drives from HGST, Seagate, and Western Digital, along with a mainstream MX200 500GB SSD from Crucial, the 7,200RPM Seagate NAS HDD ST8000VN0002 8TB performed exceptionally well. It was obviously no contest against the Crucial SSD, but neither is the SSD's capacity against this 8TB monster. For a drive of this caliber, these results were excellent, as it really shone against the near-enterprise grade Western Digital drives. Like all HDDs in the presence of an SSD, it was blown away in the 4K and 4K QD32 results. Its 4K and 4K QD32 write performance was obviously no match against the workload optimized Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD V.5 either, but the NAS HDD posted class leading results in these areas compared to other mechanical disks, often by a significant margin. Generally speaking, the Seagate NAS HDD ST8000VN0002 8TB was near the top in most of the tests. I will let you take a look at the results in our comparison graphs above.
