HD Tach will test the sequential read, random access and interface burst speeds of your attached storage device (hard drive, flash drive, removable drive, etc). All drive technologies such as SCSI, IDE/ATA, 1394, USB, SATA and RAID are supported. Test results from HD Tach can be used to confirm manufacturer specs, analyze your system for proper performance, and compare your performance with others. HD Tach is very easy to use, quick, and presents data in easy to read graphs, including the ability to compare two storage devices on screen at the same time for easy analysis.
The burst speed on the Super Talent MX 60GB SSD is very good and able to match the best numbers we have seen from other SSDs. Average read speed is also impressive and is only bested by the WD VelociRaptor – write speeds were not so uplifting: only the first OCZ SSD drive was slower.
