My WD scores 5.9!!1

Hi, i got this HD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136073
which is supposed to be a good drive but it scores 5.9 in windows while everything else score 7.4 or 7.5, so i wonder why?
and i wonder if there's a sata 3G hard drive that is faster than this and scores higher

  1. Nope, 5.9 is very good. in fact its the highest score a mechanical hard drive can get.

    WEI is generally pointless anyway. its a waste of time. but 5.9 is the cap applied to make sure SSDs dont get scored lower than HDDs (which would expose the flaws of WEI)

    run a real speed test, not WEI.
  2. ok.....i'm going to buy another 1T harddrive and i'm confused between this 2

  3. The link that you provided for Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST31000333AS shows that its a re-certified HDD.
    STAY FAR FAR Away, cause its got only 90 days warranty.
    Don't trust that one with your data.
