    I'm trying PassMark.  Seems to do what I need.  I've got one question.  Are bigger numbers always better (faster).  For example:

    Disk - Random Seek + RW: 9.5
         is better then
    Disk - Random Seek + RW: 2.7

    In other words, these are not millisecond times but benchmark numbers.

    Higher is usually better, since all the numbers usually add up into your total benchmark score. so i would say higher is better in that case
