Windows 7: Show us your hard drive performance

20 Feb 2009   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Show us your hard drive performance

I thought it would be interesting to compare everyones hard drive performances with screenshots from HD Tune utility (get from HD Tune). Maybe after some time we could produce a results table.

So heres mine:

Im going to show you the single WD Raptor X results first for interest:

And this week I received a WD Raptor 150 which I have now attached to the Raptor X in RAID 0 (128kb stripes):

This is now my current OS combined drive.

So lets see yours and how they compare.

that is quite an improvement over the older tech.... it appears to be a lot more consistent too.

that's some response time from the SSD....

Go to 'Device Manager' --> 'Disk drives' and you'll find it on the 'Policies'-tab of your HDD.
