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.

I was surprised to learn that I needed to go all the way back to this time last year to find another 2.5" mechanical drive I checked out. While reading across the drive, we see the new 1TB Scorpio Blue is significantly faster than the 750GB model.

With around the same lead, the new 1TB Scorpio Blue writes data faster as well.
