The Tech Report put the 470 up against 30 different mechanical and solid-state drives, and found its overall value proposition to be attractive and idle power consumption exceptionally low. However, the drive's file copy speed doesn't hold up well after it's been thoroughly used, at least when compared to solid-state rivals.
