Anvil’s Storage Utilities
Anvil’s Storage Utilities is a new benchmarking utility that is completely free to download and has the ability to test mainly hard drives and solid state drives, but also any other form of storage medium that you can throw at it. As well as testing the drive in a variety of benchmarking tests, it also has a drive endurance test that consistently reads and writes data to the selected medium to give days, months and potentially even years of use in a shorter period of time to see how the drive copes in the longer term.
The Anvil write tests show clearly how little effect the enclosure has on the transfer speeds. While it didn’t score quite as high here as some the previously tested enclosures, the differences are marginal at best.
