    Hey guys,

    I thought I'd let everyone know I uploaded a blackmagic disk speed test on the 27" 3TB iMac. You can check it out here:

    Personally, I'm super impressed with the performance of my iMac. I couldn't have asked for more!

    You could also just have taken a screenshot and attached it to your post.

    Also know, while there is no dedicated YouTube button to embed video, you can (and strangely are required to or the mods do it for you) embed a YouTube video via using the [media=youtube] video ID [/media][/CODE]

    Thanks for posting your tests!
    So you're getting (when you stopped the test)
    Write: 249 and Read: 382
    Yes, that's some good IO!! Again, thanks for posting some Fusion drive testing... I wasn't sure what to do initially when I ordered mine.
    See the thread I just posted testing external Thunderbolt adapters with SSD's; there's some interesting info.

    Sorry didn't realize there was a youtube tag. I'm a long time reader, but don't have to many posts yet. haha.

    So do you guys think this read write is based on the HD, or the SSD? Technically wouldn't it be the HD since the SSD is only used for commonly used files - and the test file for blackmagic wouldn't be commonly used...
