We would like to thank our sponsors for providing us with the test equipment to perform these tests.
To allow for the fairest testing possible, I will be using as many different software applications as possible to test each drive. This ensures the most accurate results and increases the chance that it can help you making just the right drive decision.
- Anvil’s Storage Utilities
- AS SSD Benchmark
- ATTO Disk Benchmark
