0Inside HDD LogoDisk Speeds

Since a post about a year ago where I com­pared the speed of sev­er­al flash drives (for speed­ing up Media Browser) I’ve been keep­ing a track of the speed of vari­ous drives / devices.  As I’ll soon be obtain­ing quite a few new drives it seemed a good time to organ­ise all the bench­marks and start a post with the data I’ve col­lec­ted.

Rather than provide com­ment and ana­lys­is, for now I’m just provid­ing screen­shots of Crys­tal Disk Mark 3.

When I next do a com­plete PC upgrade (next 6 weeks) I will be retest­ing all the drives, plus some new ones, with a nat­ive con­nec­tion.  The sys­tem will be a Core i7 Sandy Bridge plat­form and I will hope­fully be using  HD Tune Pro for a wider range of ran­dom tests (512b, 4k, 64k, 1mb and ran­dom) as well as access time and CPU usage res­ults.
