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 the HD Tune Pro read test we observed solid performance across the drive with just a little variation in the graph. The average speed of 433.5 MB/s is one of the best we've recorded with a single 2.5" SSD. The Kingston HyperX SSD ships with the latest firmware from SandForce and is responsible for a large portion of the drives stellar performance.




The write test was a little rocky with a much wider variation. We still achieved an average write speed across the drive of 406MB/s. The minimum speed registered was 360MB/s and the maximum was 429MB/s.
