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.
Reading sequentially across the drive gives us an average speed of 419MB/s. The graph produces is fairly flat with just a few ripples along the way.
HD Tune Pro uses compressible data so these numbers will go down a bit when we run incompressible data. In this test we achieved over 400MB/s while writing across the drive - very good performance.
