Assessing the performance of various hardware components is a job for specialized software utilities that can thoroughly test several parameters before reaching a qualified conclusion. For hard disk drives, one of the possible choices is CrystalDiskMark.
Quick and easy deployment
The application runs through the setup process pretty fast. Except for destination directory, there isn't anything else to configure. However, pay attention every step of the way, because you might end up with a different homepage and other applications installed as well.
Put your HDD under the scope
This application was developed to help you get to know your HDD, so it has the power to measure sequential and random read/write speeds while displaying all details to the user with the help of a simple interface. The whole look is designed to make the app very user friendly, so all the information you'll get after conducting the tests will be displayed in the main window.
Gets the job done fast
Speaking about the test, CrystalDiskMark needs just a couple of minutes to perform all the benchmarks. In order to get the most accurate results it's recommended to close all the other apps before hitting the start button.
