Default Suspect SSD - Recommended Diagnostic Utilities

Hi there,
I have a system with a Corsair CMFSSD-128D1 drive. I am attempting to check drive consistency as it may be a factor in the system's problems. However I don't know of a utility specifically for SSD drives. I have found mixed results with google searches and would like your take on this.

If a utility like Samsung's drive diagnostics or Seatools will work fine then that would be great to have confirmed too.

Thanks

Currently there is no test utility for SSD drives that I am aware of, SSD drives do not work the same as a spinning HDD and those utilities will not run or test properly on SSD Drives. What is the problem you see?

Crystal Disk tools are a benchmark utility not a testing software and that was what the original poster was asking for. Please do not post unless you have something constructive to add.

You're still not listening Quad. That software doesn't test the drive.
