Simple, quick and easy to use
With some computers in the network the wireless adaptor's write speed is much faster than it's read speed. It's odd, but according to the author, that's because of the write cache of the HD kicking-in when writing to the target network folder. However writing to the same network folder from another computer with another network adaptor does give opposite results (i.e Write speed is less than the read speed). If the HD cache was the reason for faster writes than reads, why do i get an opposite result accessing the same net folder from a different computer?. That to me tells that it's not really the HD cache causing the discrepencies but something else is wrong with either the software or the network adaptors used to test the LAN speed.
As it stands, the reliability of the test results are questionable, so use it at your own risk.
