CrystalDiskInfo is a small benchmarking application for hard drives.
The usage of the program is pretty simple and allows you to test the speed of connected hard drives. It uses different sizes blocks to test the performance.
CrystalDiskInfo is a pretty accurate program because it measures random read and write speeds using differing block sizes.
The user interface of the app is pretty straightforward and provides speeds as graphs combined with some speed statistics.
Overall, CrystalDiskInfo completes its tests without leaving much of a footprint in terms of CPU and memory usage but to get accurate results, it is recommended other applications remain closed.
