Welcome to Myce’s belated review of the Seagate 1200 400GB SAS Enterprise SSD (hereafter referred to as the Seagate 1200). Belated, especially as the Seagate 1200 has recently been succeeded by the 1200.2 (which we hope to review soon). There were a number of reasons for the delay. Firstly, the sample drive that was sent to Myce came with an early version of the firmware (01), which I found problems with. My thanks to Seagate for sorting this out (especially to Andy Beckwith) and updating the firmware level to 04. Secondly, the problems were with me. Suffice to say I am now able to bring you the review using a recent version of the OakGate system, which now includes OakGate’s native 12 Gbit/sec driver. I am keen to put the review into our catalogue of enterprise reviews, even if it is late, as the Seagate 1200 is an important drive from a big player in the enterprise storage market. Another advantage of performing this review belatedly is that the Seagate 1200 could be subjected to Myce’s comprehensive power consumption testing procedures, as announced here, and the Seagate 1200 gives us our first set of results for an SAS drive.

This article describes the Power Testing Myce will perform as a standard part of its testing of Enterprise Solid State Storage solutions. As at May 2015, Myce has been publishing Enterprise SSD reviews for 2 years and in all this time, although we have provided, arguably, the most comprehensive reports on the performance characterisation of solutions based on the use of a world class OakGate Technology test bench, we have not offered anything at all in the testing of a drive’s power consumption characteristics. I am delighted that we will now in one mighty step move from the bottom of the class right to the very top, by offering the most comprehensive power testing ever seen in data storage reviews.
