HD Tach has been around for a long time and is excellent when it comes to testing hard drive performance. It is also a very handy program when it comes to testing the controller used on particular motherboards. Tests such as Read, CPU Utilization and Burst are available at a click of the button and give you a good idea of how the hard drive can perform from system to system.
In HD Tach we can see STR read and write performance across the platters of the drive. Here we see consistent performance from start to finish just like we like to have. Both the reads and writes exceed 30MB/s and the burst rate is all the way up to a massive (for USB 2.0) 37MB/s.
