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.






If the maximum speeds didn't leave you disappointed enough, the HD Tune STR read and write test from across the platters might leave you a little angry if you were expecting actual performance to match the claims established by the product packaging and marketing materials.


When all is said and done, the Silicon Power Armor A80 is still much faster than anything possible with USB 2.0.
