CrystalDiskMark is a synthetic benchmark that tests both sequential and random small and mid-sized file transfers. It provides a quick look at best and worst case scenarios, best case being larger sequential transfers and worse case being small, random transfers.

Synthetic File Transfer Tests

The WD RE delivered solid, consistent results in CrystalDiskMark; in every test, it scored near or better than the rest of the field (save for the overachieving 1TB VelociRaptor). It’s worth noting in particular, though, that the drive’s write scores were much stronger than its read scores here.
