Benchmark Results: The HGST Touro Mobile Pro 500GB drive had an average write speed of 96.3MB/s with a burst speed of 145.4MB/s and an access time of 17.1ms.
Benchmark Results: The file benchmark results look good with ~140 MB/s writes for most file sizes over 64KB. It should be noted that the drive never got much hotter than 33C during our testing. This was hot enough to make the plastic enclosure warm to the touch.
