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.
We were really disappointed with the Pro V we tested, but the T50 gives us a rebirth of confidence in RunCore and their products. In the read test across the drive we measured an average speed of 403MB/s.
The write test peaked at just under 430MB/s while writing across the drive, one of the highest we've ever measured in this test. The average score dropped to just over 320MB/s and the minimum dipped to just under 240MB/s, but we are satisfied with the results.
