Read world HD performance tester Tags: Performance HD Storage Last response: December 14, 2006 9:06 AM in Storage Share Vinny December 8, 2006 5:01:19 PM I want to test my HDs for read and write speeds. I see these reviews saying that HDs similar to mine (meaning same RPMs, size) reading and writing at speeds much faster than mine (or so it seems). What's a good app to test my HDs and is there a database where I can find average performance benchmarks for HDs? I know TG has some but none of my HDs are on there.

It will do data transfer benchmarks, seek time benchmarks, full surface scans and display SMART values. http://www.hdtune.com/ Can't find your answer ? Ask !
