    since it very user case sensitivity i would assume you would need to replicate the exact typical/average behavior of seeks/read/write etc.

    if you are going with standard HDD benchmark you would need to use some that actually test by files and not just reading raw from the drive.
    atto and Crystaldiskmark could be used but i cant tell if the results are representative for what you are using it for.

    HDtune is a nogo since it reads raw from the drive and not from a file.
