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 sequential read speed across the drive was comparable to the Vertex 2 120GB, so even though the ATTO results were low, the AS602 can read data very quickly.
The write speeds across the drive were also very fast and on par with the Vertex 2. The TurboII-AS602 had a couple of dips on the performance graph, but we suspect the drive was tested extensively before it arrived to our office.
