About AIDA64 Engineer
AIDA64 Engineer has a hardware detection engine unrivaled in its class. It provides detailed information about installed software and offers diagnostic functions and support for overclocking. As it is monitoring sensors in real time, it can gather accurate voltage, temperature and fan speed readings, while its diagnostic functions help detect and prevent hardware issues. It also offers a couple of benchmarks for measuring the performance of individual hardware components or the whole system. It is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows editions, including Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

Since our storage review benchmark results are presented in alphabetical order, first up on the list are results from one of our favorite benchmarking programs, AIDA64 Engineer. Just to note, AIDA64 Engineer is a full synthetic benchmark. Unlike full synthetic motor oil, this usually does not always carry a good connotation. While it is not a representation of real life performance (Such as how fast you can copy movies to your drive), it does provide valuable insight into performance variation between drives from different manufacturers. As you can see in our graphs above, the 7,200 RPM Western Digital Red Pro delivered top notch performance in the linear read segment; delivering faster rates than everyone else from the beginning to the end of the drive. Its consumer counterpart, the 5,400 RPM Western Digital Red, started off mid pack in the beginning of the drive, but dropped off to last place in the Linear Read test as we move in to the middle and end of the drive. Meanwhile, the Hitachi Deskstar NAS 4TB, being the only other 7,200 RPM hard disk in the test, remained competitive everywhere else. The WD Red Pro reported the lowest random access time -- by far -- among all four drives at 11.93ms.
