Sony HD E1 ATTO Disk Benchmark
Sony HD E1 Crystal Disk Benchmark
As you can see, Sony HD E1 has pretty average score on both the benchmark tests. But real life performance matters more than benchmark results.
So I tested transfer speeds too.
Sony HD E1 Transfer Speed
As you can see transfer rates are pretty good without any accelerator when using USB 3.0 port.
Sony has provided a connecting cable which is about 2 feet long, it is long enough if you are a laptop user, but for PC users length of the connecting cable might be a problem.
Utility Software Included with Sony HD E1 Hard Disk
1. Data Transfer Accelerator
Data Transfer Accelerator increases your data transfer rate by a significant amount.
2. Backup Manager
You can backup your Hard Disk data on your PC using this tool.
3. FAT32 Formattor
This tool helps you to format your Hard Disk in FAT32 filesystem.
4. Password Protection Manager
Password Protection Manager lets you put a password on your Hard Disk and your data remains safe in case someone tries to access it.
I think in this budget it is the best buy with decent performance. If you have bought this or any other Hard Disk, feel free to share your views in comments.
