Hey bud, what tool was that you used to test drives?

I had it installed a couple of years ago on a system but forgot what app it was.

Mind to share wallpaper ... and nice new HDDs I bought some weeks ago a new WD 500G Caviar SE16 and finally get 5.9 in WEi and is damn fast, Vista boots much faster and game loading times had reduced drasticly.

In defense of Seagate, the new 7200.11 series performs a lot better than the .10s. For comparison's sake, here's the HDTach score for my (three month old, and freshly reformatted) drive -




Still, that's a good deal shy of that new WD. I've been thinking of buying a new HDD too, since this array of (relatively) small drives is making more noise and sucking down more power than they're worth. Anyone here have an HDTach score for the new 1TB Samsung drives?
