HDD/SSD Speed Database was created by SpruceGuy
How Fasts Your Hard Drive?

Now with storage media moved from mechanical rotating platters to solid state technology what gains are to be had?

We want to build an extensive HDD/SSD database of drive speeds from the real world not just from manufacturers heads as some drive seem to claim they are higher performance than they actually are! Lets see if our drive stack up to what the manufacturers state.

Get Started...
Download the bench marking tools below to check your drive and post up your results in this thread.

Download: Flash Bench
Directions:
Unzip archive and run "FlashBench.exe".
Once open enter your drive details (Vendor / Product) then tick "send Report" and click "Benchmark C:" (or whatever your drives drive letter is).
Once its all done you should be prompted with a report URL.

Download: Crystal Disk Mark
Directions:
Unzip archive and run either "DiskMark32.exe" or "DiskMark64.exe" depending on your systems architecture.
Once open click "ALL" in the top left corner and once its done use "File > Save" to save the results to a text file.

Example Post
Copy and paste the code below and edit your details and Flash Bench report URL and then Attach your Crystal DiskMark results text file and share your bench marks with us.
