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 many of our synthetic tests we will see the OWC Electra and Mercury Extreme Pro 6G performance at nearly identical levels. Here, in our baseline read across the drive we see that both drives are able to read at an average speed of right around 410MB/s.




In the write test we see nearly identical maximum write speeds, but the Electra with async flash has a much lower average and minimum speed.
