Testbed and Methods

We used the following software during our test session:

  • FC-Test version 1.0;
  • Winbench99 version 2.0;
  • Intel IOMeter 2003.02.15.

We ran all benchmarks on the following test platform:

  • Albatron PX865PE Pro mainboard;
  • Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz CPU;
  • IBM DTLA-307015 15GB HDD;
  • Radeon 7000 32MB graphics card;
  • 256MB RAM;
  • Microsoft Windows 2000 OS with Service Pack 4.

For our tests we formatted the drive for FAT32 and NTFS file systems with the cluster of default size. Portable External Hard Drive worked via the USB 2.0 port of the mainboard.

Since we havenít yet tested any hard disk drives of the kind, we will be comparing the performance of our todayís hero with that of Seagate ST910023A. We posted a review of this drive not so long ago (please see our article called Seagate Momentus 5400.2 2.5?Hard Disk Drive Review). However, for that review we used an engineering sample of the drive. This might be the reason why we were not that much impressed with the results of the drive that time. For our todayís comparison we will have a retail Momentus 5400.2 HDD tested. And as you will see in just a little bit, the retail HDD has no performance issues any more. As well as our todayís hero: Seagate Portable External HDD. :)
