Default Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB Review

There’s only one way to say it – the Samsung Spinpoint F3 is the fastest hard disk drive we’ve ever had the pleasure of testing here at bit-tech, having ripped through our benchmarks like a butchers knife through wet loo roll.

Theoretical performance in HD-Tach is a sign of things to come, with a superb burst speed of 258.9MB/sec, Average read speed of 124.8MB/sec and average write speed of a titanic 96.7MB/sec! All three of these are bit-tech records for a hard disc drive, and perhaps most excitingly, are only the average performance across the drive; when accessing data stored towards the outside edge of the drive platters speeds are much higher, with write speeds peaking at over 120MB/s!

These awesome theoretical speeds translate directly into both our MP3 and ISO file patterns in FC-Test. With the MP3 test in particular the F3 is an absolute monster, writing the 1GB file pattern in less than 11 seconds, copying on the drive in an incredible 5.49 seconds and reading the file in an awesome 4 seconds flat!
