Default What programs tests hdd WRITE speed?

Programs like Hd-Tune and DiskSpeed32 are very very handy, but they only test read speed across disk, errors, etc.
Does anybody know a programs that tests disk write speed?
Thank you.

There's a nice boot CD called the Ultimate Boot CD. This contains a really good tool for benchmarking, including extensive tests for read and write on your harddrives. Also to it's advantage is the fact that it's running from RAM, so you'll get a more accurate reading than if you were running an OS at the same time from the HDD as testing it.
