How we test a hard drive or USB stick

In this video tutorial will present two free programs that will help us to make a decision when looking to purchase either an external hard drive, hard drive or USB stick.
Many times when we want to buy a USB stick or a hard drive product details may be vague or may not fully satisfy us, and then we have to test single components and take the best decision.
What should interest us at the moment when we want to buy a hard drive or USB stick?

-Buffer HDD
-Interface connection
The average time of access,
-Noise level (idle)
-Noise Level (seek)
Following this video tutorial you can learn more about a certain part of the computer such as hard disks.

  1. Congratulations for your very successful tutorials, keep up the good work!
    In connection with the subject totorialului above, I used HD Tach for me to check my hardisckului performance. The law is quite old being among parts kre leam not changed for quite some time

    CPU usage is 20%
    Average read 45Mb / s

    I guess average read k can not be changed as a caracterisitca of hardware, but trying to make a comparison with the tutorial worries me somewhat difference between 2% (in video) and 20% (in my case) and was wondering if there is any way to reduce that percentage by a method that excludes the purchase of new parts. I suppose it's CPU usage statistic depends only on hardware performance and not the motherboard kre is a relatively new dual core processors Gygabyte 3Ghz.

    No need to worry because I have a fairly powerful processor and why I eat only 2% of matter and hard disk.
    It's normal if you have some old components than thou eat more resources.
    There are several ways to eat fewer resources you
    -Buy your ingredients newest and most advanced course
    -Do your BIOS update
    Maybe hard-disk configuration is not properly set in the BIOS
    Maybe you have a less powerful processor

    I bought a stik from 1T after ebay and I can not get him to go. I format it in ntfs and does not want to copy everything I try or do not want to open after copying. I copied the movie Pearl Harbor and did not want to open it but the computer copy went smoothly, I opened up with all the movies. Now he does not want to copy anymore, he makes a copy error. I tried to form it in order and I only went up to 78% and did not want it at all. What can I do in this situation?
    Can I recover it or is it faulty at the factory?

    I have the same problem with a Kingston of 256 GB, bought from Aliexpress. Just write what he wants. And read even less. SO sees it all, Disk manager says it's good, Paragon says it's good, ATTO Disk Benchmark the same. Some folders can not be accessed and can only be deleted by reformatting. I format it in all usual ways. A tip would catch me well. Thank you in advance!
