HDTach is a great little utility for benchmarking physical hard drive performance - it gets accurate results by bypassing the Windows 95/98 file system using kernel mode virtual device drivers. A similar mechanism is used under Windows NT, although you'll need to register HDTach to get NT support. Write testing is also unsupported in the demo/shareware version.
