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.
The ADATA SP900 starts out strong in our sequential read test across the drive. The new firmware allows the drive to outperform even the Intel 520 in this test.
The new firmware is also very fast when writing sequential data to the drive. HD Tune uses compressible data so these numbers will shrink when working with media files but documents and other uncompressed files.
