Testing methods

Trying to keep my testing methods as simple
as possible and at the same time repeatable on various systems. I will run two
simple benchmarks, ATTO and CrystalDiskMark, as both tools can
give a good impression of how the drive performs. This time I will be running
my tests with NTFS and also the default file system that the drive comes
with.

There will also be some real life tests,
simple tasks such as copy/paste of various files. As a source to store my files
I will be using 10GB of ram, and I will also be testing the flash drive with various
consumer devices such as TV’s, Laptops, and a micro HiFi.

NTFS Tests


As usual I will be starting my tests with
ATTO, so let’s see if a different file-system will improve the write numbers, and
how this USB Flash drive performs.

ATTO

The results are good. The drive was able to
reach 80MB/Sec when it comes to write speed, but only close to 140MB/Sec for the
read result.


CrystalDiskMark

No surprises here, 130MB/Sec read and
82MB/Sec for the write speed, again a good result overall.

Conclusion

At first look the results are very good,
especially for the write results, but read speed is lower than the 150MB/Sec
that we see quoted on the box.  

Let’s move to the next page for some
real world tests…
