HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.
We have already observed very high read numbers in the ATTO test and they are carried over to the HD Tune Pro read test as well. As it sits here, the Vertex 2 Pro is only out ran by the Crucial RealSSD C300 when the C300 is used with a SATA 6G controller.
When it comes to write speeds the Vertex 2 Pro is the fastest 2.5" form factor drive we have tested to date. Even more impressive than that is the low amount of fluctuation we observed between the maximum and minimum write speeds.
