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.
The read performance of the Kingston with the latest firmware shows little change from the old firmware that was used on our first X25-M tests. The X25-M is still one of the fastest drives we have ever tested.
Write transfer tests once again show little change between the Kingston drive with the updated firmware and the Intel with the old firmware.
