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.
Even with just two drives, the HornetTek X2 performs very well in both RAID 0 and RAID 1. The RAID 1 numbers are nearly identical to what we would expect from a single drive attached to the motherboards native SATA II port.
The write numbers are also respectable, but we would have liked to have seen the RAID 0 numbers a little higher at peak.
