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.

Our synthetic read test shows that the Corsair P256 runs just a tad slower than the Indilinx controlled drives, but faster than the JMicron drives.
