Working with video often requires big storage and fast speeds. Here, we use SSDs to either capture the video directly (like with the BMPCC) or to create an on-location backup (like with everything we do). When we need to evaluate the performance of an SSD, we turn to benchmark software.
There are many SSD benchmarking tools out there. CrystalDiskMark is probably ranked at the top, but there are others too. For video, though, one of the best benchmarking software is the Blackmagic Disk Speed Test. Sadly it is only available for Mac. I use a PC. So in this tutorial, I will show you how to install and enable the Blackmagic Disk Speed Test on a PC.
