  • Summary: This drive consumes less power than other 1TB drives, but it definitely isn't a slow coach. It was almost silent during our tests, and doesn't get too hot. As such, it's an ideal hard drive for a home theatre or small form factor PC, as well as being suitable for typical desktop machines, too.
  • Pros: Lower power consumption than other 1TB drives, very quiet and cool operation, good write performance
  • Cons: Slightly high cost per gigabyte, was a little sluggish in our file transfer test
