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.

HD Tune Pro uses compressible data to test the sequential speed of the drives listed in the chart. The Kingston V+200 performs very well in this test, nearly 400MB/s read across the drive.

In the write test across the drive we hit a few choppy areas where the drive had been tested in Kingston's factory before shipping to us. This is a retail drive so we most likely received a drive that Kingston pulled to run a quick quality control test on.
