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 two 240GB OCZ SandForce drives are listed together at the top of the chart. In our first synthetic test to show our sample group we see that the LE is just a little slower at reading data from across the drive.
The write test shows further separation from the Vertex 2 to the Vertex LE. In this test the LE is quite a bit slower, but still manages to write faster than the Intel X25-M and Crucial RealSSD C300 128GB.
