I'm trying to find a web site that has a searchable database of hard drive, SSD, and flash drive benchmarks. Ideally I could search by model number and get the following information:

Seq read max, Seq read min, Seq read avg;

Seq write max, Seq write min, Seq write avg;

Seek time max, Seq time avg


I want actual benchmark data and not just model specs.

I go to AnandTech to get benchmark information of solid-state drives.

For flash drives, I've used

PassMark is useful for hard drive benchmark information.

AnandTech provides some of the info I was looking for. PassMark only gives rankings without any details. Thanks for the first two. – rbeede Jul 18 '12 at 14:46
