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 you can see from the results in both HDTune and SiSoft Sandra 2009, the 1.5 Terabyte drive offers some improvements in performance over the 1TB drive while falling slightly below it in the access time portions of the benchmarking. The SSD from Intel shows superior performance except in the CPU usage and burst speed in HDTune. The inclusion of the SSD is just a look into the future of disk storage solutions.
