Everest Random Access Time
Everest Ultimate and Corporate Edition offer several different benchmarks for testing and optimizing your system or network. The Random Access test is one of very few if not only that will measure hard drives random access times in hundredths of milliseconds as oppose to tens of milliseconds.
Drives with only one or two tests displayed in write the write test mean that they have failed the test and their Maximum and possibly their Average Scores were very high after the cached fills. This usually happens only with controllers manufactured by JMicron.
The access time on the newer firmware takes a little longer to read data, but the results are still far better than any platter drive. It is the access time that makes your applications and windows feel fast and the FTM-25 feels very quick.
The write access times are relatively unchanged with the newer firmware.
