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.
When it comes to read speeds across the drive we see the Kingston SSDNow V Series 128GB drive performing on par with other products on the market. As we have shown many times, this only reflects a small portion of tasks that are done on a PC.
When it comes to write speeds we see that the Kingston SSDNow V Series drive has a wide range of performance and the differences come from the cache and JMicron controller. The JMicron controller is known for this type of abnormality.
