Toshiba N300 6TB NAS HDD Review

Test Procedure & Specifications


Testing a mechanical hard drive’s performance is pretty straightforward, and there isn’t much to say tell in this section. I will be testing the drive that in this case is the Toshiba N300 6TB Desktop hard disk drive in a wide a variety of applications to gather as many tests results as possible.

I’m covering the basis with Anvil’s Storage Utilities, AS SSD, ATTO, and CDM where I’ll be doing fillage analysis in four steps: 0%, 25%, 50%, and 75% capacity usage. On top of these more generic tests, I’ll be running the full AIDA64 Storage Benchmark tests with Linear, Random, and Access Time in both read and write-based tests. This is then followed by the real-world app testing through PCMark 8’s Storage Benchmark. To top it off, I’m testing the drive in a 20minute test each for sequential read and write as well as random read and write with IOmeter set up with 4 workers.

In return, it will hopefully allow you to find just the right comparison so you are well equipped with the knowledge you need when you decide what you next storage drive should be.

Test system:

Software used:

  • AIDA64 Storage Benchmark
  • Anvil’s Storage Utilities
  • AS SSD Benchmark
  • ATTO Benchmark
  • CrystalDiskMark
  • IOMeter
  • PCMark 8 Storage Benchmark
  • Windows 10 Pro
Each of the following pages will contain the benchmark screenshots with 0% and 75% data fillage for the base apps. The comparing charts will show the drives with 0% fillage for comparison reasons. The analysis charts show us how steady the performance is across the drive’s surface and as it fills up.
