The resulting numbers from testing the WD Black 6TB is surprisingly high for a hard disk drive. You don’t normally get above 200MB/s of sequential read and write speed from a hard drive. But the 6TB Black was able to reach it without any problem. I’ll explain more in the conclusion part of this review on the next page.
