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.

Our first test where we read across the flash turned out quite well. The average result was 372MB/s and we peaked at 395MB/s.

Things didn't go as well on the write test. Here we achieved an average speed of just 227MB/s. The peak performance was in line with what we expected to see, but the graph had a lot of variation in it. The wave was all over the place.
