Best app for comparing the performances of HDDs ?

There is a couple of hard drives connected to my computer, spread between FW400 and FW800 ports, with or without hubs.

I'm trying to figure out the respective performances of each of them (mostly in term of writing and reading speed), to see how to improve the set-up.

XBench gives some results, but for one HDD at a time, and the results can differ a lot between tests running on the same HDD.
(So far, I've been running the Disk Test 3 times for each hdd, to see the average results, which is rather cumbersome).

Any idea on a better software, allowing to run relevant stats on several units at the same time, etc... ?

Thanks for any help.
