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.

 

 

Read Tests

Our synthetic STR test shows that the Solidata X2-128 lags behind the Intel X25-M by a small margin, but it is still the second fastest SSD we have tested to date.

 

Write Tests

The Solidata X2-128 achieved the fastest write maximum we have ever seen in a SATA based drive ever. After 20% of the test, the drive starts to trail off. Here you can see where the minimum score really hurts the drives average score.
