Toshiba N300 6TB High Reliability HDD Review

Testing Approach

Two platforms were
used to perform testing:

  1. An OakGate Test
    Unit, as is used in our reviews of Enterprise storage
  2. A Z170 based PC,
    running Windows 10

The Workstation
was used to run HD Tune Pro 5.50, Atto, Anvil, PCMark8 Storage, and Fast Copy benchmarks.

The OakGate Unit
was used to perform the same Myce/OakGate Reads & Writes Tests that are a
standard part of our Enterprise Solid State Storage tests.

The OakGate Unit
was also used in an attempt to test the reliability of the N300 by leaving
intensive 4K Mixed Random Reads and Writes running for extended periods of
time.

to look at the results of the performance tests run on the Workstation…
