The ST1000DX001 is a Solid State Hard Drive (SSHD). There is 8GB of MLC NAND flash built into this model which helps facilitate better performance than a purely mechanical drive. The peak sequential read /write speeds of 190 MB/s are around 10% higher than average for a mechanical drive, but no where near typical SSD speeds. We have seen peak 4k write speeds as high as 5.72 MB/s, which is very impressive and to date the highest 4k read speed is 1.24 MB/s which is less impressive but still above average for a top end mechanical drive. The performance increases attributable to the NAND flash are primarily noticeable in the area of small file performance and the Seagate offers only marginally better sequential performance than other mechanical 1TB hard drives. Overall the ST1000DX001 is a very solid performer and bests the group average by 30%. The larger 2TB version (ST2000DX001) has similar performance but represents even better value for money. [Feb '14 HDrivePro]

Very good average bench

The Seagate Desktop SSHD 1TB averaged just 16.8% lower than the peak scores attained by the group leaders. This is an excellent result which ranks the Seagate Desktop SSHD 1TB near the top of the comparison list.

Strengths

Avg. 4K Random Mixed IO Speed 2.09MB/s
Avg. 4K Random Write Speed 4.85MB/s

Poor consistency

The range of scores (95th - 5th percentile) for the Seagate Desktop SSHD 1TB is 62.1%. This is a particularly wide range which indicates that the Seagate Desktop SSHD 1TB performs inconsistently under varying real world conditions.
