OCZ Vertex 2 100GB Solid State Drive - Benchmarks - HD Tune Pro

Now that we have tested the best from Crucial in the competitive 100/128GB capacity range, it is time to see how OCZ's flagship consumer drive fairs.

HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

 

Benchmark: measures the performance
Info: shows detailed information
Health: checks the health status by using SMART
Error Scan: scans the surface for errors
Temperature display

 

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.

In HD Tune we are able to verify that a drive is reading and writing data evenly across the entire drive. Here we see that the OCZ Vertex 2 reads straight as an arrow, just what we like to see. The average read speed is also in line with the other SF-1200 drives we have tested; all are pushing the usable limits of SATA 3G. The Crucial RealSSD C300 128GB is able to take advantage of the SATA 6G interface and is capable of outperforming the Vertex 2 in this drag race, but we have seen this before so no surprises there.

In write speeds we see the C300 128GB drive hit a brick wall at around 140MB/s, while the Vertex 2 is able to run up to the limits of SATA 3G on our GIGABYTE X58A-UD7 motherboard, but the other SF-1200 drives are as well.
