HD Tune measures disk performance to make comparisons between drives or disk controllers.
Higher is Better
Lower is Better
SiSoft Sandra is a diagnostic utility and synthetic benchmarking program. Sandra allows you to view your hardware at a higher level to be more helpful.
As a portable storage drive the Cavalry Pelican performs at a level much lower than it does when used with the SATA II interface. The access time is on par with that displayed by the Intel SSD. In HDTune the Cavalry performs slightly better in the average read test than the standard hard disk drives, but falls incredibly short when compared to the Intel device. The Sandra testing shows the Pelican to perform better than the standard hard disk drives in three out of four tests.
