Benchmark Results: Temperature And Power Consumption

Three 2.5" SAS Drives: Enterprise Data Giants, Compared
By , Achim Roos

Thanks to its lower spindle speed of 7200 RPM, the Seagate Constellation.2 stays cooler than both of the other drives.

In idle, the Hitachi Ultrastar C10K600 runs with the least power, but the two Seagate drives are also convincing with moderate values not exceeding 5.2 W. The power consumption of all three test candidates rises little, even at maximum data throughput. However, the Seagate Savvio 10K.5 uses more power than the other devices in the test bed.
