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.

Starting out with read performance across the drive to get things off and running. The Patriot Pro SE 120GB has an average read speed across the drive of over 415MB/s. The minimum and maximum in this test are very close to the average speed, so there isn't a lot of variation when the drive is in a new state.

In the write test across the drive we achieved an average speed of just over 400MB/s. Once again the performance was smooth with the maximum and minimum speeds keeping very close to the average. This is important when running demanding applications that require a steady state of performance.
