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 chart shows the latest and greatest from other manufacturers. The two PhotoFast drives have a built in RAID component so they should be ignored for most of the review. The V Series is able to perform at half the speed of the Intel and Indilinx chipsets in read performance.
In the write test we see that the V Series still shows some signs of the issues associated with the JMicron 602 controller. The drive has a few points where the drive stumbles.
