HD Tune Pro
HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:
Benchmark: measures the performance

Health: checks the health status by using SMART
Error Scan: scans the surface for errors
HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.
Here we get our first peek at the performance of the VIZO SPEED-UP against some competition. As you can see, the promise of 10x USB 2.0 isn't going to hold up. If that were the case we would have an open road to around 350MB/s in this test. Here we see that the SPEED-UP isn't going to deliver much more than 130MB/s. This is still faster than what most modern generation platter drives are able to deliver, so you will not have a problem with say a 300GB Western Digital Raptor or latest edition 2TB drive when it comes to reads.
Moving onto the write category, the VIZO seems to hit a wall at 100MB/s. As you can see from the second test down, the same solid state drive on the onboard NEC controller is able to write around 75MB/s faster.
