Although WD Red 2 and 3TB do very well when it comes read/write tests, access is pretty important- especially if you’re looking for a cheap drive. Imagine you have a 120gig SSD drive for your operating system. Now if you have a lot of applications and makes, you end up prioritising if you have a lot of it. If you are running something that doesn’t really get affect you much when it comes to loading time and you want space, having a little bit of an advantage over here helps.

If you’re wondering what kind situation you require- one of them as an example- if you want to run Steam and you need lot of space but all thanks to the wonderful price quotes you get at the time of publishing this review and you’re short of cash enough to buy only 500gig drive, this helps.

For a single platter drive, it is not unexpected. Real competition would be to compare Toshiba’s 3TB counterpart with this drive.
