re: TESTED: Western Digital 18TB Ultrastar DC HC550 hard drive in OWC Mercury Elite Pro USB 3.2 enclosure

This page evaluates the Western Digital 18TB Ultrastar DC HC550 hard drive for speed across the entire volume capacity as well as speeds for 32K to 512MB transfers.

The OWC Mercury Elite Pro USB 3.2 enclosure was used to house the drive. It is a fanless, USB 3.2, all-aluminum proven performer.

The WD18 is in effect a much faster 14TB hard drive than a 14TB-capacity hard drive.

TESTED: Western Digital 18TB Ultrastar DC HC550 Hard Drive

The Western Digital 18TB Ultrastar DC HC550 is the fastest hard drive that MPG has ever tested.
