Here is a HD Tune bench of mine, bear in mind mine is coming up to a year old, and is under heavy use, partitioned for games/data, so it's used every time I launch a game, which, of course, I do a lot



Your bench looks fine buddy, and welcome to OCN.

Your drives are not the same though. One is a 5001 the other is a 5002.

I just ran HD tune on my 5001 and got about the same speed as smokin waffle. Mine is about 1 year old but with only a few hours of use. On the other hand my 500GB WD blue smokes it. Below is my WD Blue drive

In contrast here is my WD 500GB Black drive. I am shocked, the blue drive seems faster than the black drive...
