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 reads across the SSDNow V+100 are fairly steady with an average speed of 192MB/s. The peak and low points are very close to the average speed, so you will not get a lot of variation while reading back data in real world tasks.

Toshiba and JMicron controllers had issues in the past with writing data and the writes in this test would get a little crazy with dips down into the single digits. The V+100 doesn't have an issue with that and the drive holds a fairly steady line across the drive.
