The next test will be FMT's file benchmark to measure read and write performance of files ranging from 1MB to 15MB. This is a more representative benchmark of performance, as files of varying sizes will actually be written to the drive. Results from the 1MB, 3MB, and 5MB are shown below.

These are small files being tested, however, so there's still a chance for improvement during Sandra testing and custom file transfers.
