My WD scores 5.9!!1 Tags: Hard Drives Western Digital Storage Product Last response: October 12, 2010 9:25 AM in Storage Share kaspro October 11, 2010 10:23:07 AM Hi, i got this HD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 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 More about : scores welshmousepk October 11, 2010 10:35:23 AM 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. kaspro October 11, 2010 10:45:45 AM ok.....i'm going to buy another 1T harddrive and i'm confused between this 2 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... i've tried the wd like for my lifetime but the seagate doest look bad and better price 2!!
