Western Digital 2.5″ Red 1TB NAS HDD Review

CrystalDiskMark


CrystalDiskMark is a small HDD benchmark utility for your hard drive that enables you to rapidly measure sequential and random read/write speeds.

Here are some key features of “CrystalDiskMark”:

  • Sequential reads/writes
  • Random 4KB/512KB reads/writes
  • Text copy
  • Change dialog design
  • internationalization (i18n)

Like ATTO, CDM gives us similarly high read and write figures. Looking at the 512k sector as well, the drive also performs very well with well over 63MB/s write and 43MB/s read.
