version after 2.1 not reliable with SSD because is not considering firmware compression algorithms. performances measured are 50% of real speed. :-(

Black Magic says you're delusional. From the Mac App store:
"Some SSD's use hidden compression when writing data to make their benchmarked speeds appear faster. Disk Speed Test will now measure the true speed of these SSD's so you know if they are suitable for high quality uncompressed video capture."

Does what it says... although would be nice to read/write multiple test files at the same time to test stream playback.

No way to download this. Link goes to the "App Store" whereupon clicking it opens iTunes and puts a blank file into the music folder. There is nothing on the developer's site that even mentions this freeware.
