SiSoftware Sandra 2010
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility. Sandra provides most of the information (including undocumented) you need to know about your hardware, software and other devices whether hardware or software. In order to test the hard drive, SiSoftware Sandra 2010c was used as part of the test suite. The graphical results that Sandra gives you after the test is completed nicely shows how drives perform over time and where on the drive the performance is seen.

WRITE Performance Testing:
Benchmark Results: The Toshiba HG2 256GB SSD scored how we think a mainstream SSD should in Sandra 2010 and was found to have an average read score of 223MB/s with a write score of 149MB/s. The read access times also looked solid, but the write access times were a little longer than we expected.
Comparison Chart: The Toshiba HG2 256GB SSD is a little slower than some of the other SSDs, but the numbers still blow away what you'd get on a hard drive!
