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.
Holy cow! Under HD Tune Pro we see a maximum read speed of 1237MB/s and even the average speed is not too far behind that.
Here is where the Crucial C300 setup really sets itself apart from the SATA 2.0 X25-E drives. We can see a maximum write speed of a really stunning 967MB/s and the average is still extremely healthy at 883MB/s.
When we consider the average write speed, the C300 setup is about 55% faster.
