Crystal Disk Benchmark is used to measure read and write performance through sampling of random data which is, for the most part, incompressible. Performance is virtually identical, regardless of data sample so we have included only that using random data samples.
TxBench is one of our newly discovered benchmarks that we works much the same as Crystal Diskmark, but with several other features. Advanced load benchmarking can be configured, as well as full drive information and data erasing via secure erase, enhanced secure erase, TRIM and overwriting.

ANVIL STORAGE UTILITIES PROFESSIONAL
Anvil’s Storage Utilities (ASU) are the most complete test bed available for the solid state drive today. The benchmark displays test results for, not only throughput but also, IOPS and Disk Access Times. Not only does it have a preset SSD benchmark, but also, it has included such things as endurance testing and threaded I/O read, write and mixed tests, all of which are very simple to understand and use in our benchmark testing.
The AJA Video Systems Disk Test is relatively new to our testing and tests the transfer speed of video files with different resolutions and Codec.
REPORT ANALYSIS AND FINAL THOUGHTS
The hottest seller on the market right now for external SSDs is USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) which will provide transfer speeds of 1050MB/s. This is confirmed with USB 3.2 Gen 2 becoming a very common inclusion in desktop systems, laptops and motherboards. The SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is hitting the streets at the perfect time.
This SSD can be purchased up to a 2TB capacity, has speeds of 1050MB/s, and comes with a 5-year warranty which makes it a very easy decision for purchase. Its build is beyond reproach as it is small, thin, very attractive and it even has a carabiner loop…but no matching orange carabiner which would be very nice. Silver Seal.
