On this review, we performed series of tests to know the read and write speeds of the drive. In addition to this, we will also show you the health and  temperature during idle and with load. We used three different software:

  • HD Tune Pro – This tool specifies the health of the drive and scans for any errors.

Based on the results, the Transcend StoreJet 25C3N performed exactly what we expected. The hard drive didn’t show any signs of high temperature during benchmarks.

VERDICT
