Read And Write Transfer Rates
Read Transfer Rates
The HM500LI by Samsung is the fastest mechanical 2.5” drive we’ve ever seen, providing an excellent 57.8 MB/s average transfer rate on our reference test system. It beats all of the competitors in this benchmark.
Hitachi’s Travelstar 5K500 doesn’t do very well in this benchmark. At 62.6 MB/s, it is as fast as Samsung was two drive generations ago with the HM250JI.
Write Transfer Rates
