Cannot get my download. They have no way to contact them. No email, their forum as they show on line is nonexistent, and they do not respond to my fax(es). The only thing that seems to work is that you can buy from their online site. I would recommend going to someone else for a similar product.

Before Apple went from OS9 to OSX I had three software titles from this company. I was hooked because they professed that they would give free updates for life. Well, if there aren't any updates what does it matter how long you get them for. I see that last time they produced anything relevant was in 2008. Stay away, or get hosed.

QuickBench is a simple to use but powerful hard disk performance benchmarking tool. It provides three built-in, industry trusted test suites which measure the performance of dozens of preset hard disk transfer sizes. Complementing QuickBench's built-in test suites is a configurable custom test option which allows you to design a disk test of virtually any size and duration according to your own personal requirements.

Get the results that you can count on! QuickBench tests your hard disks through the Mac file system. In other words, QuickBench measures performance in the same way that your applications actually store and retrieve data. Testing in this way ensures highly repeatable, stable, real-world results. Other benchmarking utilities (which test the drive directly) bypass all of your system's real-world influences. As a result, they tend to produce "synthetic" results which may have limited predictive value for your system.

Testing at the file system level has other benefits as well... QuickBench can benchmark just about any mounted writable volume and interface - including RAM disks, flash memory cards and Apple Share volumes! Further, QuickBench is extremely safe since all of its tests are performed by reading and writing to a temporary test file, leaving your existing data completely untouched.

We all know that collecting accurate benchmark results is important. However, understanding the results is equally as important. And again, QuickBench delivers. QuickBench provides multiple ways to view your measurements. Use QuickBench's graphical view to spot patterns and trends quickly, or switch to the numerical view to see details down to a thousandth of a megabyte per second.

After testing, QuickBench can save your test results as a file which can be viewed using any standard text editing software or as a Microsoft™ Excel™ compatible file designed specifically to make external chart creation a snap.
