Updated by Cici on Mar 30, 2023

State Solid Drives (SSDs) are known for their read and write speeds. However, over a period of time, users may experience the slow performance of their SSDs and lag in their daily tasks. Poor working of your computer is the most common sign of your SSD's sluggish performance. It can happen due to different SSD issues, such as slow reading and writing speed, less memory space, cooling deficiency, etc. 

The question may come to your mind, how do you run the SSD performance test without pulling it out from the system? Well, this guide will help you to find the answer. Keep reading to learn the two easy solutions to test SSD performance. 

How to Run SSD Performance Test 

It's necessary to check SSD performance regularly. In this part, we will introduce two different methods. Check the following table for a quick comparison of the two methods based on the following aspects:

Comparison EaseUS Partition Master CMD
Interface Easy Confusing for beginners
Content of the test Read/write speed, I/O speed, temperature, health Read/write speed
Accuracy of the test Detailed and precise results Quick and rough results
Suitable Users All, including beginners Professional users

As you can see in the table, CMD provides only general results of your disk's read and write speeds. On the other hand, EaseUS Partition Master has better usability, detailed results, and is easy to use.

Thus, we recommend you use this tool to run the performance test of your SSD.
