I was curious as I was looking at upgrading to a ssd for the performance. I also found a handy little app on line called CrystalDiskMark5, it reads your hd's read write performance and it's for FREE!! Here's a link if anyone wants a download http://crystalmark.info/software/CrystalDiskMark/index-e.html
It's safe, I scanned the file after save with Malwarebytes ;). You can adjust the amount of runs and the amount of data - random and sequential...pretty cool.
My computer sucked horribly. Which brought me to my original question because the SSDs that I'm looking at have like over 500 read and write ratings. So it would be over a seven fold increase to what I have now.
