Bottomline: Seagate Mobile HDD is a power efficient drive with fast transfer rate and slim profile. It could be the right replacement for laptops even of old age to not only increase the capacity, but also to boost the performance.

Seagate recently announces its world’s first 2 TB, 7 mm Mobile HDD, which is light and power efficient drive.

Design and Features

The 2.5-inch form factor drive is 25 percent lighter than the previous generation of mobile hard drives. The drive is compatible with most of the today’s mobile computers, the drive’s standard SATA 6 GB/s interface provides for easy integration into existing laptop designs and portable computer upgrades.


We received the drive and used it for more than three weeks. While testing the drive, we connected it with our test bed and installed OS and it was working fine. The drive did better than previous SSD and the bootup time reduced by more than 20 seconds.

Also, we connected the drive using the USB cable to run some benchmarks and it did pretty well in that as well. On HDTunePro, it resulted in 126.4 MB/s read speed and on CrystalDiskMark read speed was 133.6 MB/s and write speed was 126.5 MB/s. In our real life test, it was able to transfer 2 GB of assorted data from PC to drive in 55 seconds with speed up to 360.4 MB/s. While transferring from drive to PC, it took 37 seconds with up to 436.09 MB/s speed.
