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.
When it comes to pure read speed, the Seagate drives are able to outpace the ioDrive. If you think back to the Crucial SLC SSD review from two months ago, HD Tune isn't a very good judge of character when it comes to server loads.
The Write test shows that all of the products lose a bit of performance when compared to the Read test speeds.
