Data storage properties

Data storage properties

A data storage device is a device for recording (storing) information (data). Recording can be done using virtually any form of energy, spanning from manual muscle power in handwriting, to acoustic vibrations in phonographic recording, to electromagnetic energy modulating magnetic tape and optical discs. A storage device may hold information, process information, or both. A device that only holds information is a recording medium. Devices that process information (data storage equipment) may either access a separate portable (removable) recording medium or a permanent component to store and retrieve information.

Read transfer speed

Read transfer speed

Data transfer rate or just transfer rate is the average number of bits, characters, or blocks per unit time passing between equipment in a data transmission system.

Transfer rates can serve several functions. The response time can help a network administrator pinpoint where slowdowns and potential hangups exist in a network. By analyzing data transfer rates and adjusting accordingly as a preventative measure, a system can be made more efficient and will be more prepared to handle extra bandwidth constraints in times of heavy usage.

Testing mechanisms such as fiber optic loopbacks can assist in measuring and conducting data transfer tests.

Power consumption (standby)

In electrical engineering, power consumption refers to the electrical energy over time that must be supplied to an electrical appliance to maintain its operation. The power consumption is usually a result of power used to perform the intended function of the device plus additional "wasted" power that is dissipated as heat, vibration and/or electromagnetic waves.

Edition 02/2018- Bei einem Preis von 150 Euro kann man angesichts der Darbietung der Western Digital Blue nicht meckern. Die SSD-Festplatte legt im Testlabor ein schnelles Tempo an den Tag, beim Lesen erreicht sie 566 GByte in der Sekunde, beim Schreiben ebenso flotte 535 MByte die Sekunde. Auch das Schreiben von großen Datenmengen gelingt ohne Einbruch der Datenraten, wie es bei vielen anderen Festplatten der Fall ist. Für eine Systemerweiterung bei schnellem Tempo zum kleinen Preis bietet sich die Western Digital Blue somit in jedem Fall an.more

Edition 10/2016- Die SSD überzeugt im Test im Großen und Ganzen und kann sich durch ihre hohe Leistungsfähigkeit sowie durch ihre praktischen Wartungstools auszeichnen. Allerdings dürfte es das Modell in dieser Form auf dem Markt schwer haben, denn wirkliche Alleinstellungsmerkmale findet man hier nicht. Erschwerend kommt hinzu, dass der Preis auch noch relativ hoch ist und der Lieferumfang, daran gemessen, enttäuschend mager. Lässt man das außen vor, kann man hier dennoch ein positives Fazit ziehen.more

Edition 11/2016- Einige Aspekte der WD Blue sind wirklich sehr gelungen und setzen die SSD von der Konkurrenz ab. Vor allem die extrem lange Lebensdauer ist bemerkenswert. Zudem sind die Performance-Werte des Geräts im Test allesamt auf einem hohen Niveau. In einigen Bereichen wird die direkte Konkurrenz klar distanziert. Gleichzeitig fällt auf, dass sich hier keine dedizierten Schwächen beobachten lassen. Nur der magere Lieferumfang ist als wirkliche Schwäche zu identifizieren. Derzeit liegt das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis auf einem mittelmäßigen Niveau, weshalb sich die Attraktivität der Blue noch in Grenzen hält. In jedem Fall ist das Modell aber eine solide Wahl.more
