How We Tested
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

We tested the Seagate Laptop Thin SSHD using DiskSpeed32, CrystalDiskMark, and PCMark 7 programs. In order to determine the performance of the portrayed drive, we also ran the tests on three other 500 GB hard disk drives. The models and characteristics of the tested units are shown in the table below. Prices were reseached at Newegg.com in the day this review was published.

Hard Disk Drive Capacity Size rpm Buffer Interface Price (USD)
Seagate Laptop Thin SSHD 500 GB 2.5”, 7 mm
5400 64 MiB SATA-600 80.00
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500 GB 3.5” 7200 16 MiB SATA-600 NA
Seagate ST500LM012
500 GB 2.5”, 9.5 mm
5400 8 MiB SATA-300 55.00
Hitachi Z5K500-500 500 GB 2.5”, 7 mm
5400 8 MiB SATA-300 NA

The drives were connected to an internal SATA-600 port. The only variable component between each benchmarking session was the HDD being tested.

Hardware Configuration

Operating System Configuration

  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1

Software Used

Error Margin

We adopted a 3% error margin in our tests, meaning performance differences of less than 3% can’t be considered meaningful. Therefore, when the performance difference between two products is less than 3%, we consider them to have similar performance.
